Ever wanted to post a card from the bottom of the South Pacific? There’s actually a place where you can do that. The place is called Hideaway Island and can be found 10 minutes from Port Vila, Vanuatu. And yes, it actually made it all the way to Sweden – it took approximately 2 weeks. You can read more about it here.
If you ever take a trip down to Great Ocean Road (a must do if you’re in Melbourne!), make a stop at The Great Ocean Road Wildlife Park where you can literally cuddle with dingos. No jokes. I repeat – you can CUDDLE with DINGOS. And they are adorable.
This is definitely the most accessible wreck dive I’ve ever done. A short walk down to the shore and then a short swim and then you’re there. It’s a pretty big wreck and lots to see. It has a pretty interesting background story as well – it was torpedoed, then pulled up on the beach and then it slid down in the water again from the tremors from a volcano eruption. It’s a great dive for both beginners and advanced divers, with some swim-throughs and a lot of spaces to explore. There’s also plenty of life here as you can see in the video; turtles, napoleons, triggerfish, pufferfish. Being such an accessible dive spot it can get very crowded – so get there early in the morning to avoid the big crowds coming from the southern parts of the island.
