Australia is home to the famous Great Barrier Reef, undoubtedly one of the world’s most remarkable gifts. The reef’s 3000+ individual systems and coral cays are brimming with precious marine life and hundreds of impressive tropical islands boasting breathtaking golden beaches. Because of its unsurpassed natural beauty, the Great Barrier Reef has become a world-famous tourist destination. Appreciate the reef’s beauty up close while you snorkel, scuba dive, or swim with a dolphin! Who knows, you may want to take to the skies for an aircraft tour. Explore the reef in a glass-bottomed boat, open boat (self-sail), or during a semi-submersible educational trip. Of course, cruise ships and whale watching tours are also exciting options.
