Description :

"A unique look at South Australia's fascinating underwater world, the video shows the distinctive marine life of South Australia's coastline, explores reefs and jetties, famous shipwrecks, and the attractions of the Port Noarlunga Reef Underwater Trail."

Commissioned by the South Australian Maritime Museum, the documentary explores popular dive spots along the South Australian coast.

In this clip we see underwater images of the marine life of the Port Noarlunga reef and the famous Star of Greece shipwreck.

The Star of Greece sank off Port Willunga in 1888, resulting in the death of 17 of the 28 people on board. The wreck is now teeming with marine life and is one of the states most visited dive spots.
