The Worlds Best Scuba Diving - Great Barrier Reef


The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in the world, stretching some 2 000 km along the north eastern coast of Australia. Australia has almost 1/5th of the world's reef area, and most is located in the Great Barrier Reef (Barrierreefaustralia.com).

"Washed by the warm waters of the South-West Pacific Ocean the perfect environment is created for the world's largest system of coral reefs. The Great Barrier Reef is of such pristine condition that it was listed by the World Heritage Trust as a protected site and is therefore managed by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to ensure that its beauty is maintained for many holiday makers and siteseers to come.

Visitors in their thousands come to the Great Barrier Reef to marvel at the spectacular sight seeing opportunities that is unique to our area. The Wet Tropics World Heritage listed Rainforest on one side and the Great Barrier Reef on the other.
