Great Barrier Reef
- Want to do the Great Barrier Reef right? Put yourself at the heart of it! Here are four reef travel suggestions from The Whitsundays for you to try.
Sail above the reef
Be a part of the action on an ocean racer or tall ship, or let the crew do the work for you on a luxury yacht or launch.
Snorkel the island fringing reefs
The concentrated pockets of fringing reef offer up beautifully coloured corals and marine life within the calm, sheltered boundaries of the islands. Day tours will take you to the best spots.
Scoot to the outer reef
Launching from Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island, scoot beyond the islands to spend the day snorkelling or scuba diving on the outer Great Barrier Reef.
Fly over the reef
The ultimate Whitsundays reef experience can only been seen from the air. Take a scenic flight over Heart Reef and prepare to have your mind blown.
