Have you heard of the Great Southern Reef?

Join Professor Seaweed and her friends Frankie and Sam to learn more about one of Australia’s best kept secrets!

It is home to giant kelp forests and fascinating animals such as rock lobsters, sea snails and sponges. Explore the sandy beaches with this inquisitive trio, and discover marine curiosities that are washed up along the coast after a big storm.
