The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most iconic destinations for travellers, and just an hour’s flight from the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast this April. On the Southern Great Barrier Reef, visitors can feel like intrepid explorers, as if they were discovering places no one else has ever seen.
The Southern Great Barrier Reef offers visitors the chance to see large hard coral reefs firsthand and join colourful fish and big marine life like turtles and manta rays for a swim. At just over 4 hours drive from Brisbane, this unique region can easily be included as part of a larger itinerary and the snorkelling is within easy reach, right off the beach.
