Travel expert offers insider hints and advice at GO Diving Show ANZ


GO Diving Show ANZ

Travel writer, editor, scuba girl and passionate eco-warrior Deborah Dickson-Smith will be offering some insiders hints and advice when she presents on the ANZ Stage at the GO Diving Show ANZ in September.

Deb took her first plunge over 30 years ago – on the Great Barrier Reef – and was instantly addicted to the underwater world. Deb has since logged over 1000 dives in Australia and overseas.

Deb has over 25 years experience in the world of publishing, and as a specialist travel writer and diver, Deb has managed to travel (and dive) through most of the South Pacific and SouthEast Asia, and now uses these experiences to design tailor-made dive holiday experiences for her clients at Diveplanit Travel.

When Deb’s not planning dive holidays for her clients – or writing articles for the Diveplanit Blog she also writes for a number of travel publications, including Scuba Diver Magazine, Scuba Diver Life, Signature Luxury Travel, Vacations & Travel, Pacific Island Living, and Get Lost magazine.

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.

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 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.
