Great Barrier Reef location

Great Barrier Reef location gateways along the Queensland coast providing direct links with Australia’s Great Barrier Reef.

Choosing your Great Barrier Reef region

We would all love an endless holiday on the Great Barrier Reef and be able to visit the more than 600 islands.

Most visitors tend to choose one of three main regions when planning their holiday or take longer to experience the Reef from start to finish fully.

Great Barrier Reef tours showcase all of the available departure points.  This way you can see which location will suit you best.  If you have any questions, be sure to join us on live chat or send us an email.

While you plan your Great Barrier Reef tour, knowing which areas offer options that suit everyone is good.

The Cairns region offers the dynamic city of Cairns and stylish Port Douglas and Palm Cove townships. It is relatively easy to get to the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef.

The Whitsundays is a group of islands off the coast of Airlie Beach and is famous as a sailing destination and for iconic Whitehaven Beach and Heart Reef.

The Southern Region of the Great Barrier Reef has convenient favourite locations and facilities accessed from the bigger population centres further south. Smaller points are relatively uncrowded, more laid-back and limited in facilities.
