In the deep
Gus Fitzgerald

Gus Fitzgerald has spent a life in the ocean; a surfer and swimmer and commercial diver who was introduced to the water by his father, the late Tony Fitzgerald. Many of life’s lessons Gus learnt in the sea. But Tony’s cancer diagnosis when Gus was only a small child meant a father-son relationship in the shadow of loss; one that would eventually teach Gus the most important lesson of all. How to stay afloat when you lose the people you love the most; how to survive in the deep.

 

Gus told his story live on Sunday 27 May 2018 at SPUN at Garrmalang Festival at Darwin Entertainment Centre.
