The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef in
the world, in the Coral Sea, off the coast of
Queensland, NE Australia. It is 2,000 km long and is
separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon up
to 160 km wide.
The Great Barrier Reef itself is composed of hundreds of
individual reefs and has many islets, coral gardens,
and unusual marine life. In some places it is more
than 122 miles wide. Truly one of the natural
wonders of the world.
Nowhere else can you better
experience the natural wonders of the planet's
largest marine park than in Tropical North
Queensland - Australia's closest and easiest access
point to the Great Barrier Reef, where diving,
snorkelling, sailing, cruising and island hopping
are a way of life.
Take a leisurely sail or cruise out to Low Isles for
snorkelling off the beach. Cruise to the outer reefs
to dive at some of the most beautiful coral reefs
and explore this incredible underwater world of
unique fish and coral species.
The Tour Desk staff at Castaways Trinity Beach can
