The Great Barrier Reef stretches right along the Queensland
coast and is recognised as one of the world’s best diving and snorkelling destinations. The Great Barrier Reef is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the world with it’s amazing underwater botanical gardens and has an
extraordinary diverse ecosystem. This is the only place in the world where 2 World Heritage areas exist side by side.
The coral reefs remain unchanged by human interference and are a shelter for a myriad of fishes,
anemones, corals & sea ferns. Take the plunge and discover this wide, blue wonder accessible to all … azure seas sparkling against crystal white sand, tropical islands, warm inviting waters home to a colourful
kaleidoscope of reefs, shoals, coral cays and mysterious shipwrecks teeming with exotic tropical marine life. A mild climate and clear visibility make year-round diving a vibrant reality.

temperatures dropping to a balmy 25 degrees Celsius (77F), it’s the perfect way to spend a winter’s day. Summer water temperatures rise to around 28C. It is safe to swim year-round in the tropics, however during the
warmer months from November to May, additional precautions may be necessary due to the presence of marine stingers.
