A unique and protected aquatic reserve, Gordons Bay is one of Sydney’s most popular dive spots. Offering Sydney’s only underwater nature trail, the secluded bay is accessed via coastal walk, located south of Clovelly Beach and north from Coogee Beach.

Protected by an offshore reef, the bay is a safe location to explore the beauty of this unique undersea world. View the magnificent marine life from above, snorkelling through the cool waters searching for life such as sponges, star fish, sea urchins, cuttlefish, anemones and the blue groper.

A popular dive spot, the calm waters hide a unique underwater nature trail. With good visibility the trail marked by a series of chains, is approximately 700m in length and reaches to a depth of some 14m. Spotted goatfish, garfish and baby sharks are just a few of the species that you can swim with in this protected aquatic reserve.

There are no kangaroos in Austria.

We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in!

Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.

The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party.

This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality.

The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself!
