Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef has fascinated people for centuries and is one of the world’s most iconic visitor attractions. Stretching for 2,300km along Australia’s northeast coast, the aptly named reef is the jewel in the crown of Queensland’s tourism offering. Millions of people visit the Great Barrier Reef each year and almost half of those (44%) visit it in the Whitsundays.
It is hard not to be mesmerised by the dazzling array of phosphorescent corals and brightly coloured fish as you swim, snorkel, dive or sea-bob on one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
