Business Profile

2013 Winner, North Coast Tourism Awards
2012 Finalist, North Coast Tourism Awards
Family owned and operated since 1980

“Our business has been in the Hitchins family for over thirty years. My brother Kevin and I took it over seven years ago.

In 2012 we were named finalists in the State Tourism Awards, so we feel proud of that achievement and hope we’ve got what it takes to be named as winners.

Our business is now internationally renowned and attracts divers from all over the world who are keen to experience Fish Rock off South West Rocks. In June 2012, Australian Geographic named Fish Rock as one of the country’s top three dive sites.

Living and working here in the Macleay Valley definitely has its bonuses. Firstly, we have a small town environment and community, which is appealing to tourists.

Secondly, we are located an equal distance from both Brisbane and Sydney, which allows us to market successfully and draw on both.

Thirdly, our coastline is very different from any other part of NSW. We have some great features, like interesting islands plus large, unspoilt areas of National Park.

The dive experience we offer attracts divers from all over Australia, and all over the world. It’s very rare that a diver won’t say that diving here was the best dive they’ve ever done.”
