South Australia CuttleFest 2020 is returning, and while the usual influx of thousands of international visitors won’t be happening this year, it means local South Australians will have the front row to experience the one off yearly event – the breeding of over 100,000 cuttlefish!

Join EMS – Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries Inc. professional guides for a safe and supervised community snorkel tour with the largest breeding aggregation of giant Australian cuttlefish in the world. This will be located at Stony Point in the Upper Spencer Gulf Marine Park.

The Marine Park is also home to a variety of colour plant life, fish, sea lions and dolphins. For more information, head on over to their website here.
