Great Barrier Reef

Named one of the Seven Wonders of the World

The Great Barrier Reef is an experience high on the bucket list of many travellers​

Comprising of nearly 3,000 individual reef systems, the Great Barrier Reef is an incredible natural phenomenon that attracts travellers from all over the world.

This magnificent aquatic region is an underwater mecca for an incredible array of aquatic plant and marine life. From sea turtles, gliding gracefully beneath snorkelling visitors, to colourful kaleidoscope of fish species, busily attending to their homes amongst the coral, there is just so much to view on the Great Barrier Reef.

For guests looking to really live the life of luxury, Orpheus and Lizard Island both feature magnificent and tropical island luxury resorts that are guaranteed to entice every traveller. The iconic island destinations are well-placed for convenient access to the Great Barrier Reef, and are perfect for extending your reef experience.

The Great Barrier Reef is the perfect experiences for guests of all ages and is a true icon of Australian tourism.

  • Bring the family on a holiday of a lifetime, soaking up the tropical sunshine and exploring one of the world’s most beautiful natural phenomena.
  • Spoil yourself and hire an incredible private yacht for the ultimate tropical island and Great Barrier Reef adventure.
  • Relax poolside at one of Australia’s best tropical island paradises, or perhaps make the most of your stay and enjoy the many all-inclusive experiences on offer.

The weather in Tropical North Queensland and the surrounding Great Barrier Reef is incredible, with warm dry winters and balmy summers.

The Dry Season (winter) occurs between May and October and is the best time to head out and explore the reef. The temperatures average between 17.5 – 29°C (63.5 – 84.2°F).

The wet season usually occurs between November to April, and sees monsoonal rains and higher humidity. The temperatures range from 21.5 – 31.4 °C (70.7 – 88.5°F). This is also the time in which cyclones can occur in the region.

What do our experts say about Great Barrier Reef?

"Such an iconic destination and one with important environmental lessons for us all. Look out for nudibranchs while snorkelling or diving – my favourite reef creatures!"
