Deep dive into knowledge 

 

Underwater bioscan 12 Apostles Coast and Hinterland Great Ocean Road Victoria Australia

Are you ready to discover a world of wonder below the surface of the Twelve Apostles Marine National Park? This joint project was undertaken by Museum Victoria, Parks Victoria and Deakin University. Teams of divers completed more than 20 dives and where it was too deep teams from Deakin lowered baited cameras in order to record and monitor the health and extent of marine life.

In 2015 scientists discovered 5 drowned Apostles 60m below the surface 6km off the coast of Peterborough. These stacks appear to have been formed under similar geomorphic processes to the modern day Apostles some 60 000 years ago. Their survival in the face of rising a sea levels provides some insight into the future of this incredible coastline. Dive in!
