Has anyone here ever dived in Australia? I'm going up the gold coast from Sydney to Cairns in Sept and am curious how good the photo oppurtunities will be (i.e. will there be clear blue waters and lots of fish and colourful stuff to photograph) I'm mainly planning on doing beach dives since I'm short on time and not certified.
Is visibility there good? I read one guide that said visibility is 15-30M on the great barrier - but I don't know how a picture would look under such conditions. Is it easy to find fish when you are diving - or do you have to actively search for them? I'm keen to try u/w photography but I'm leery I might just come back with pictures of a bunch of rocks because I'm totally new to this
