Welcome to the Historical Diving Society Australia – Pacific

Our aim is to promote and preserve the rich diving heritage of our region. We have members throughout Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific region and around the world.


Membership in the Society includes four issues of the Society’s magazine ‘Classic Diver’ as well as the invitation to participate in events and network with others interested in historic diving, both in our region and internationally.


Classic Diver

Our journal Classic Diver is published four times a year. We also organise and encourage educational displays, research, historical walks, film nights, bibliophile meetings and the preservation of historical diving equipment.



The HDS Australia – Pacific is the ideal place to learn and share your interest by networking with members at film nights, historical tours, collectors groups, annual rallies and the international historical diving community.
