Things to Do in Great Barrier Reef
Covering more than 2,000km of coastline, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the best-loved natural wonders in the world, drawing in more than 1.5 million visitors every single year. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the smattering of paradise islands and shallow diving spots promise some amazing once-in-a-lifetime diving and snorkeling experiences.
The rich and colourful ecosystems provide the landscape with a never-ending supply of amazing wildlife, from vibrant coral formations to unusual fish species, sharks, and ancient turtles. Divers can hop aboard stylish catamarans to explore the major diving spots, or head further afield to the lesser-known destinations that provide an authentic look into the marine life of the Great Barrier Reef.
When you’re not delving below the water’s surface, you can take a helicopter ride above the scenery, soaking up the diverse collection of islands, beaches, and reefs from a different perspective. And, when your feet hit dry land, there are plenty of fascinating gateway towns to wander through.
