Diving in Queensland

There are endless opportunities to explore the waters of the Great Barrier Reef all year-round. From snorkelling off the shore of an island to exploring the outer reef on a day trip. 

Discover sparkling blue seas set against crystal white sand and tropical islands. This part of Australia is home to a colourful kaleidoscope of reefs, shoals, coral cays and intriguing shipwrecks teeming with tropical marine life.

Queensland offers open water, wreck and night diving, specialist dive and liveaboard tours in the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Sea and the cooler, subtropical waters of Southern Queensland.

First-time divers can learn to dive with an introductory ocean or resort dive, or at one of Queensland’s world-class specialist diver training facilities.
