Terry goes diving to count the suckers on an octopus.

Australia doesn't spring instantly to mind as a holiday destination, but as a country to which Britons travel for the purpose of visiting friends and relatives - 'VFR travellers' in the jargon of the trade. Yet a tourist industry, and a successful one, has been developed for the benefit of those VFR travellers, as well as Australians. John Carter went to Western Australia to survey the scene.
What happens when a town is turned over lock, stock and barrel to the holiday business; when an old Moorish settlement in Spain is transformed into an international pleasure zone? Sarah Kennedy went to Mojacar to get the answers, and find out if tourism has swept aside the real Spain.
For another report on activity holidays, Sue Carpenter went to Flamborough Head in Yorkshire for a weekend bird-watching.
