I am gong on a short trip in November and interested in active/adventure small experience providers, and not all touristy. Where should I look? Reply to this

Hi Adam 😊 will you be visiting the east or west coasts of Aus?

Obv you have an interest in diving and swimming 😉 so on either coast you will find well accredited dive shops - Australia has some of the strictest quality control measures with dive shops so dont stress too much about finding a dive shop. If you can give us an idea of where you will be I can perhaps suggest some cool things to do and see rather than the opera house or theme parks type stuff. Reply to this

In addition, advertising rules in Australia (as dictated to by consumer protection law) are also strict. This usually ensures (but does not guarantee) that what you see online is likely to be what you get. Sure, there will be differences in quality, but it is unlikely that you will fall to a scam in this way. Reply to this
