Check out my newest video, a compilation of footage I took while snorkeling and scuba diving around Australia. The video features underwater scenes from the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast, Ningaloo Reef on the west coast and a bit from my dolphin volunteering experience in Monkey Mia. Enjoy!
As my time in Australia drew to a close, quite a few people asked me what my favorite place was that I visited. Now obviously, I didn’t go everywhere in Australia.
