3 to 11 December 2022
'Life Below Water' - United Nations - Sustainable Development Goal 14 (UN SDG14)

Theme: Oceans and Climate Change

This year we're marking our 29th ocean festival, celebrating our five marine protected areas, our marine flora, fauna and megafauna.

Our oceans cover 80% of our planet, generate 50% of the oxygen we breathe and absorb 25% of all carbon dioxide emissions. We need to keep our oceans healthy.

How can we help? How can we celebrate our oceans? We can share ideas and spread what’s great about our oceans.

Dive into nine days of events, encounters and experiences to celebrate our love of the ocean.

This event is co-sponsored by the NSW Government.
