Great Barrier Reef

With more than 100 ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef, Tropical North Queensland offers the ultimate personalised adventure on the world's largest and most spectacular coral reef system.

Swim with dwarf minke whales on the ribbon reefs off Port Douglas, snorkel with turtles at a sand cay, dive among colourful coral gardens on the outer reef or camp on a deserted island to watch the sun rise over the Great Barrier Reef.

Join a live-aboard dive boat for days and nights of underwater exploration, keep your hair dry on a helmet dive or zoom along on an underwater scooter. Go under your own steam paddling to a nearby island from the beautiful Cape Tribulation beach or board a helicopter for a breathtaking aerial view of the reef.

Enjoy the seclusion of a luxurious island resort in the middle of the Great Barrier Reef where you can leisurely explore a colourful underwater world, dine with the Coral Sea lapping your toes, discover marine birdlife or gaze at the ocean while you laze in a spa.

Tropical North Queensland is the closest destination to the Great Barrier Reef. Travel to a pontoon on the outer edge of the reef, dive straight from the back of the boat or swim out from an island to see some of the 1500 species of fish, 4000 species of molluscs and 400 types of coral that live in this diverse ecosystem.

Try an introductory dive to see the reef and its colourful marine life up close or learn to dive so you can complete multiple underwater adventures as a certified diver. The enormous variety of diving experiences includes plummeting Coral Sea wall dives, diving alongside giant potato cod, joining reef sharks at night or witnessing the annual coral spawn.

Diving, snorkelling, sailing, cruising and island hopping are all part of everyday life in Tropical North Queensland, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.
