There are certain places in the world that take your breath away. Where you step back and simply smile in wonder. The Great Barrier Reef is one of those places.

Internationally recognized as the world's largest and healthiest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef provides world-class experiences at a world-class destination. Scuba-diving and snorkeling, sailing, bare boating, cruise shipping and expedition cruising are just some of the world class water-based activities on offer.

Stretching over 1400 miles - from Tropical North Queensland in the north, right down to Bundaberg in the south - the Great Barrier Reef is easily accessible from various access points, including Port Douglas, Cairns, Townsville, Airlie Beach, Seventeen Seventy and Bundaberg.

Try this on for size: at approximately 135 000 miles2 in size, the Great Barrier Reef is the only living structure on earth that can be seen from outer space!
