The Keppel Islands | Extraordinary Reefs
In this book, Dr Alison Jones explains how the reefs of the Keppel Islands in the Southern Great Barrier Reef, Australia, have evolved to adapt to local conditions. Having dived almost every reef in the bay, she is well qualified to describe the best dive sites, the coral species you can expect to find, and any hazards to watch out for. Her personal star-rating of every dive site is a must-have reference for snorkellers and divers alike.
