Great Barrier Reef Trips

The Great Barrier Reef stretches along the Queensland coast, so there is a long list of cities and towns to choose from to plan a day trip – or more extended stay – along with your visit.

When planning your itinerary, consider how easy it is to combine a Great Barrier Reef experience with a day trip or more extended to explore iconic Australian destinations.

As well as island locations, it is easy to visit coastal destinations and the hinterland, given the long and narrow topography of the Queensland coast.

Many of these destinations are also hubs for direct access to the Great Barrier Reef, so it is easy to visit the reef and plan a day trip to further explore one of these exciting destinations.
