12 Species sighted at Rotunda, La Balsa Park, Mooloolah River QLD 18.06.21

A solo shore dive by Harvey in the river to check out the conditions. 273 minutes and 19c water with viz up to 4m.

Conditions were about the same as they have been, and the water was cool but it is the best way to relax! Still not many of the bigger nudibranchs but there was a Thecacera pennigera which to my knowledge is only the second time seen in the river. Had a great time checking it out and taking photos, and that definitely made the dive... :)
