Great Barrier Reef

Teeming with wildlife, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest living organism on Earth and can be seen from the Moon with the naked eye.

One of the best marine wildlife encounters in the world, the Great Barrier Reef stretches for more than 2,300 kilometres along the Queensland coastline. With approximately 1,625 species of fish and six of the world’s seven species of marine turtles, there are hundreds of experiences available to explore this underwater world – and with each experience ticket sold, you’ll be helping to protect the long-term outlook of the reef with an ‘Environmental Management Charge’ built into the price.

With glittering white beaches made entirely of crushed coral, it’s easy to feel like a modern-day castaway on Lady Elliot Island. Located at the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef, walk the emerald green-edged island, or go snorkelling to see giant manta rays, colourful corals, fish, turtles and dolphins.

An archipelago of 74 tropical islands, the Whitsundays lie just off the Queensland coast, next to the Great Barrier Reef. Protected from large swells, secluded islands beaches such as the iconic Whitehaven, are ideal for sailing, swimming, snorkelling and relaxing.
