For more than 2,000 kilometres along Australia’s Queensland coastline, the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef offers a humbling marine wonderland that’s so large it can be seen from outer space.

A water lover's dream, you can take a dip in waters above the reef to snorkel and scuba dive; walk along the pristine stretches of white sand for beachcombing and feet-in-the-sand dining; island-hop on a yacht or seaplane flight; or simply recline in your superb island hotel with a cocktail and a view to die for.

To experience the Great Barrier Reef you can stay in one of the coastal regions nearby – like Cairns, Port Douglas and Mission Beach – and take day trips onto the reef. Or to truly immerse yourself in the natural wonder, you could stay on one of the many islands, such as the Whitsunday Islands, an archipelago of 74 tropical isles next to the reef, or with a stay on one of the main Great Barrier Reef Islands such as Lizard island.

Experiences not to be missed include a visit to the multi-award-winning Whitehaven Beach, the beauty of Heart Reef, watching turtles hatch on Heron Island (in season) and snorkelling in the reef off Magnetic Island.
