Great Barrier Reef Airlie Beach - QLD Landmarks

Landmark: Great Barrier Reef
Address: Whitsunday Drive, Shute Harbour, 4802, QLD

One of the seven wonders of the natural world, The Great Barrier Reef is the most impressive marine park spanning over 3000 kilometres of the most extraordinary underwater experience you could dream of. The natural delights of the Great Barrier Reef are so enchanting both under the water and above, ensuring its standing as one of the most desired holiday destinations in the world. Viewing this amazing marine park from the air is nothing short of spectacular and it is the only living thing on earth that is visible from space.

Recreational divers and snorkellers flock to the underwater mecca of the Whitsundays and is by far the best way to experience the excitement of The Great Barrier Reef, with a gathering of some 3000 individual reefs of which many can be accessed. Even non swimmers can view the immense marine life with purpose-built pontoons at Hardy or Knuckle Reefs. More than 400 independent kinds of coral live in the Great Barrier Reefs astounding coral gardens, over 1500 species of tropical fish and more than 200 varieties of birds.

Soar to lofty heights and get a birds eye view of Heart Reef, it is the only way to see this incredible natural wonder. If you are swimming between October and May either hire or buy a stinger suit as a precaution.
