Recently, I had a work trip to Adelaide in South Australia and I decided to add a few dive days. I knew a few divers there via my Sydney dive buddies, and the local diving community was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. We did 2 days at the Rapid Bay Jetty, a structure from the 1930 densely covered in intebrates and weeds, and populated by lots of fish, among them the fantastic leafy seadragons. Enjoy! I also wrote a brief essay about the biology of the leafies.

Very nice. Especially the first one with the blue water background. South Australia is definitely on my bucket list.
