Dive the Great Barrier Reef

When people travel for a dive trip to Australia there is usually only one destination they have got there mind set upon, Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef – the world’s largest coral reef system.

Cairns is by far the most popular and offers scuba adventures for the most experienced diver to those wanting to dive for the very first time.

The Great Barrier Reef is incredibly rich and diverse, stretching 2300 kilometres and even seen from outer space. Under the surface it contains a breathtaking array of marine creatures of all shapes and sizes that include:

  • 600 types of soft & hard corals and more than 100 species of jellyfish
  • 3000 varieties of molluscs and 500 species of worms
  • 1625 types of fish and 133 varieties of sharks and rays
