~~ 8 Clubs, 150+ Divers, World Class Diving! ~~
Bicheno 5th-8th June, 2015
Presentations, prizes, try-dive equipment, competitions, photo shootouts, SCUBA Olympics and more…
The 10th annual Tasmanian Combined dive Clubs Weekend (CCW) will be held over the Queens Birthday long weekend of 6-8th June 2015 at the iconic east coast town of Bicheno. The weekend provides an opportunity for divers from all around Tasmania (and even Australia) to come together for a weekend full of diving adventures. The event attracts up to 100 divers from 8 clubs resulting in all levels of experience and passions being catered for. Based at the iconic east coast town of Bicheno, the adjacent Governor Island marine reserve provides some of the best diving in Australia. Granite boulders and ledges provide habitat for kelp in the shallows and spectacular sponge gardens, zooanthids and other invertebrates at depth. Around this butterfly perch and other fish swarm across the bottom.
Additional to the abundant dive sites, the weekend is full of social events, an underwater photography shootout, gear and industry displays, great prizes and competitions. The event is based at the Bicheno Town Hall (just 100m from the nearest dive site) and each evening allows divers to interact and socialise over a meal and beverage. A variety of presentations are given on diving expeditions, gear and equipment, as well as on science and conservation issues. Stunning photographic presentations and a fun quiz also fill in the evenings.
