Google goes underwater

Ocean street view

How cool! Google’s street view has taken a dive underwater. You can now explore the world’s oceans from home to find playful seals, Blue Gropers, Port Jackson Sharks and lots of other unique marine plants and animals.

Even cooler is that you can see many of these animals for real just off our coastline! Grab and adult and a snorkel and head to one of our 24 marine protected areas dotted along the coastline to see diverse and colourful animals. Little fish, big fish, sponges, kelp and seagrass meadows are waiting for you to explore while the water is warm. You might even be lucky enough to spy a Weedy Seadragon drifting about jetties, definitely not seen in the google images as it only lives in the southern waters of Australia. Don’t forget the camera!
