The Great Barrier Reef (off the coast of north-east Australia) is the world's largest reef system – so big it can be seen from outer space - and one of the seven natural wonders of the world. It's no cliché to say it has to be seen to be believed – you'll think you've fallen into Photoshop, because the reef's colors are pure technicolor.  

The reef was selected as a World Heritage Site in 1981 and is home to a mind-boggling array of marine life - whales, dolphins, porpoises, dugongs, sea turtles, sharks, stingray, giant clams, seahorses, frogs, sea birds, sea snakes, the list goes on.

More than 1,500 fish species live on the reef, including – yep, our little friend Nemo, also known as the clownfish.

So what's the best way to experience this wonder of nature? There are a range of tours to suit you, depending on your time and your sense of adventure. You can tour for a few hours or a few days, underwater, on land or even in the sky.
