The Australian coast is perfect for amateur and professional surfers. From the Pacific Ocean to the Indian and Southern Oceans, the great, surfing waves in Australia are world renowned. But do be careful, as surfing is a dangerous sport. Pay attention to reports of sharks, jellyfish and strong currents and do not surf alone.

In the same reserve it is possible to scuba dive down to sunken submarines from the Second World War, now home to a rich and interesting array of sea life. Swim with the dolphins at Sorrento or try scuba diving for the first time at Portsea Pier. Go and see all the fish, birds and seals in the Popes Eye nature reserve.
