The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most beautiful natural reefs in the world. It stretches more than 2,000 kilometers along the coastline of Queensland. Visitors to the reef can snorkel, scuba dive, or take a sight-seeing flight over the reef. There are so many ways in which you can enjoy the beauty that the reef has to offer, it is definitely something that should be added to everyone’s must see lists.

You will be able to enjoy the smooth seas, underwater tunnels, and the pure beauty of the reef up close. In addition to the natural beauty of the reef itself, you will also be able to see crabs, mollusks, and sea stars. As if that wasn’t enough, you can also explore the SS Yongala shipwreck, how many people can say they saw an actual shipwreck up close and personal?

If you would rather stay above the water, you can explore the reef from a boat. There are many different types of rental boats available or you can sign up for a tour of the reef. By viewing the reef from above, you will still be able to enjoy all of the beauty and sea life. It is also a great way to show off your Lifeguard Swimsuit.
