Marine life guru Nigel Marsh at GO Diving Show ANZ


Nigel Marsh

Nigel Marsh, whose Unique Aussie Marine Life features in Scuba Diver Australia and New Zealand are firm reader favourites, will be on the Photo Stage at the GO Diving Show ANZ in September.

Nigel is a freelance underwater photographer and photojournalist based in Brisbane. His work has been published in numerous magazines, newspapers and books, both in Australia and overseas.

He has dived extensively around Australia, especially the Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea, and his travels have taken him throughout Asia, the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean. His underwater photographs have also won a number of international photographic competitions.

Nigel’s passion for diving and the marine environment evolved from an early age while snorkelling the beaches off his hometown of Sydney, Australia. Learning to scuba dive in 1983 served to increase his interest in marine life, and he was soon sharing his experiences with others, presenting slide shows and writing articles for magazines – his first article was published in 1983.

Nigel has since produced thousands of articles for diving, travel and inflight magazines around the world, focusing on his favourite subjects – fishes, diving, sharks, shipwrecks, marine life and travel.

Nigel has also co-authored two diving guide books with Neville Coleman, Dive Sites of the Great Barrier Reef and the Coral Sea (New Holland 1996) and Diving Australia (Periplus Editions 1997). He has also self-published a book – HMAS Brisbane Queensland Coral Warship (Nigel Marsh Photography 2011).

Over the last ten years Nigel has been busy working on a series of children’s books on marine-related subjects (A to Z of Sharks & Rays, Exploring Shipwrecks, Crabs & Crustaceans, Weird and Wacky Fish) and a series of dive guides and marine life books (Coral Wonderland, Muck Diving, Underwater Australia, Diving With Sharks, Close Encounters With Marine Life) for New Holland Publishers.

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 2024 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.

Parking is also free and the venue is easy to get to with plenty of transport options, so get the dates in your diary now and prepare for an epic weekend celebrating all forms of diving.
