Lunchtime Talk: Simon Lessels

Event Dates
Event/Exhibition location
Royal Society Room, TMAG, 12:00pm

Join us as we welcome commercial diver Simon Lessels to delve into the evolution of vintage helmet diving, spanning from the 1800s to the present day in Tasmanian waters and beyond.

Listen to how these iconic diving helmets are made, and what they're used for, and hear the stories of some of the people who forged the industry in the south. Simon will bring along a 123 year-old diving helmet from 1900, and a few modern-day examples to compare. 

With over 20 years of experience as an Australian Clearance Diver, Commercial Diver, Hyperbaric Tech, and Commercial Diver Equipment maintainer, Simon Lessels brings unparalleled expertise to our latest Lunchtime Talk.
