The GO Diving Show ANZ is proud to announce that Dr Richard ‘Harry' Harris, who sprang to worldwide fame as part of the global team who descended on Thailand to locate and rescue the members of the Wild Boars football team, is gracing the Main Stage in September.

Harry, who has worked in anaesthesia, diving and aeromedical medicine around the world, joins fellow technical diving legend Pete Mesley on the Main Stage at the inaugural event, which is taking place 28-29 September in Sydney.

Harry's passion for cave diving goes back to the 1980s and has taken him to the corners of the globe in search of new adventures. An interest in accident investigation, and search and rescue activities, has been a theme during his diving and caving career.

Harry and his colleagues have explored caves to 245m depth, and shipwrecks to over 150m, in dives lasting over 16 hours. He is an enthusiastic UW photographer and videographer who is now also building a career in documentary films.

The GO Diving Show ANZ

This annual event, taking place this year on 28-29 September at the Sydney Showground at the Olympic Park, is aimed at showcasing the very best of our underwater world to everyone from raw novices who are either contemplating getting into diving, or have completed their entry-level courses, to advanced divers, right through to technical divers and veteran CCR divers.

There are an array of stages – the Main Stage, the Photo Stage, the Australia/New Zealand Stage, the Inspiration Stage and the Tech Stage – that will play host to dozens of speakers from around the world, as well as a host of interactive features to suit young and old, from VR diving experiences, trydives, a demonstration pool, Bruce the rodeo shark, mermaids, and much more.

Surrounding the stages and features will be a broad range of exhibitors, from tourist boards and tour operators to resorts, liveaboards, training agencies, retailers, manufacturers, and conservation organisations.

The recent GO Diving Show UK, now in its fifth year, attracted more than 10,000 attendees over the weekend, and spanned an area of 10,000 sq m of exhibition space, and the Australia and New Zealand variant aspires to reaching this level in coming years.

Entry to the inaugural GO Diving Show ANZ is completely free – register here to get your tickets for what is undoubtedly the diving event of 2024 in Australia. Parking is also free, so get the dates in your diary now and prepare for an epic weekend celebrating all forms of diving.
