Coast to Coral: What the Wreck is it! Diving into Queensland's wrecks and reefs
Join Reef Check Australia and friends on the second Tuesday night of each month in your lounge room/office/comfy chair, for an evening of discovery, inspiration and appreciation of our local marine, coastal and catchment environments.
Beneath the waters of Queensland ‘out of sight, out of mind’ are thousands of historic shipwrecks ranging from those wrecked in 1791 (Pandora) through to those from World War Two and include
those in thousands of meters of water to those sitting on top of reefs in shallow water. Australia’s heritage is preserved in these shipwrecks, the landscapes, and the collections. It’s also present in the memories and stories of survivors, Indigenous people, and the shared memories of communities. Shipwrecks are the most common form of artificial reefs which are becoming increasingly popular and important attractions for recreational divers. Join in and find out more about Queensland’s historic wrecks and reefs and hear about how you can help protect these incredible museums under the sea.
Virtual doors (zoom) opens at 6.25pm for a 6:30 pm start.
Stay after the event for networking and nibbles (BYO obviously!) - get your burning questions answered and continue your thoughts, ideas and sea-minded discussions with your local community, all from the comfort of your couch!
Bring a mate and share in the discovery!
At Reef Check Australia we’re all about inspiring our mates and we love to read your thoughts! So, share your favourite parts about the night and tag us! Reef Check Australia #coasttocoral
