Every year, over two million people travel from all over Australia and the world to witness the Great Barrier Reef in sunny Queensland, Australia, and when you've seen it first-hand, you'll understand why!

It’s the world's biggest coral reef system, visible from space, with islands, reefs and colourful corals, dotting its 2,300km length. The Great Barrier Reef begins off the coast of Bundaberg in southern Queensland and extends north to the Cape York Peninsula at Australia's northernmost point and is home to some of the world's most spectacular marine life. You’ll discover stunning hard and soft corals, vibrant tropical fish, majestic marine turtles, and a diverse range of crustaceans, molluscs, rays, dolphins, and whales, as well as some of Queensland's most beautiful locations here.

The majority of visitors travel to this tropical north Queensland region to dive and snorkel among the underwater treasures, although boat tours, scenic flights, island hopping trips, and sheer relaxation are also popular.

Hundreds of exotic tropical islands can be found among the Great Barrier Reef's natural splendour. Many islands, including Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays and Fitzroy Island in Tropical Far North Queensland, welcome visitors.

Whitehaven Beach, on Whitehaven Island in the Whitsundays region of the Great Barrier Reef, is one of the most picturesque and photographed beaches in the world. Pure white silica sand is lapped by warm and inviting crystal-clear blue water, you could join a tour that includes a trek up to the Tongue Point observation for some of the best views of the beach and its surroundings.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's seven natural wonders, so grab your snorkel, plunge beneath the surface, explore it in a semi-sub, or even fly over it in a seaplane. Whether you choose a half-day, full-day, overnight or even a multiple-day experience as part of your Australian escape, The Great Barrier Reef is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that you will cherish forever!
