From the wondrous coral triangle to undersea volcanos, shark infested waters and eerie shipwrecks beneath the ice, join acclaimed National Geographic photographer David Doubilet as he braves the ocean's most hidden places.

National Geographic Live  returns to the Sydney Opera House this winter with more epic stories of people and places from the far corners of the world. Coral , Fire, & Ice  sees Doubilet on assignment with National Geographic  as he shares his personal challenge to create a visual voice for the world's oceans.

Venture into the rich coral triangle of Papua New Guinea's Kimbe Bay, the Philippines, and Indonesia - centre of the world in terms of marine biodiversity. Discover an unspoiled wilderness of waters crowded with layers of life: fingernail-sized pygmy seahorses to 60-foot tall towers of barracudas. Then, journey south to the cold ice waters of Antarctica to hear real life adventures of survival, leopard seals, and shipwrecks, joining Doubilet in his newest work on the sculptural beauty of icebergs.

Recently named  an "Ocean Hero'' by National Geographic's Ocean Initiative, Doubilet's powerful and emotional stories and ground breaking work will inspire and connect audiences young and old to the incredible beauty and the silent transformations happening within the invisible and extraordinary world below.

An unmissable event for adventurers of all ages, experience life in the most remote corners of our planet - on assignment with National Geographic.
