‘Aquarius’ had several screenings in California and Hawaii in 1970 – back in Australia the film was re-titled and advertised as Queensland Seafari (which capitalised on Northern Safari while appealing to patriotic Queenslanders).

Skindiving Paradise was an excellent ten-minute short film by Ron Taylor with out-of-date music in that era but acceptable today. (The Great White Shark film offered was not made available in time at the last moment).

The real  ‘people of the sea’ still pictures taken when the 16mm footage was being recorded for Aquarius is now at Aquarius – People of the Sea (The Polynesians)
