Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area

Take a step back and smile as The Great Barrier Reef takes your breath away.  With stunning coral reefs, colourful marine life and a rainbow of blue water as far as the eye can see, it’s a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed. Watch our video below and see why you should experience the greatest reef on earth first hand.

Covering over 344,000 square kilometres (roughly the same size as Japan or Germany), the sheer size and grandeur of the reef resulted in it being one of the original eight wonders of the world and the first coral reef to be awarded World Heritage status. The Great Barrier Reef stretches over 2,300 kilometres from Tropical North Queensland in the north, right down to Bundaberg in the south.
