Have you ever wanted to see what's below the surface?

MANGROVE Jacks, Wobbegongs, Blue Groper, Black Cod and the iconic Grey Nurse sharks are just a few of the species inhabiting the Solitary Islands Marine Park.

Local underwater photographer and videographer Brett Vercoe captured a glimpse of the life under the sea at South Solitary Island last week.

Multiple Grey Nurse sharks which are a popular attraction for scuba divers and a very friendly Wobbegong that glided past the camera and settled on the reef below the videographer are just a few of the species he came across.

Have you experienced the unreal life living in the waters off our coastline and multiple islands?
