Welcome to the Great Barrier Reef
A world heritage listed, natural inspiration.
One of Australia's most remarkable natural gifts, the Great Barrier Reef is blessed with the breathtaking
beauty of the world's largest coral reef. The reef contains an abundance of marine life and comprises
of over 3000 individual reef systems and coral cays and literally hundreds of picturesque tropical islands
with some of the worlds most beautiful sun-soaked, golden beaches.
Because of its natural beauty, the Great Barrier Reef has become one of the worlds most sought after
tourist destinations. A visitor to the Great Barrier Reef can enjoy many experiences including snorkelling,
scuba diving, aircraft or helicopter tours, bare boats (self-sail), glass-bottomed boat viewing, semi-submersibles
and educational trips, cruise ship tours, whale watching and swimming with dolphins.
A Natural Wonder
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world, and pulling away from it, and
viewing it from a greater distance, you can understand why. It is larger than the Great Wall of China
and the only living thing on earth visible from space.
