Snorkel around the Great Barrier Reef and discover one of the natural wonders of the world on adventure holidays to Australia
Enjoy some of the world's best snorkelling opportunities on adventure holidays to Australia with a trip to the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland.
With a Highlights of Australia tour, you get to visit the country's top sites, including Melbourne, Sydney, Uluru in the outback, Adelaide and Alice Springs.
But one of the most memorable activities on your trip will surely be a snorkelling excursion to see the largest living organism on the planet in the Great Barrier Reef, which is actually visible from space.
"Kick through coral canyons filled with turtles, sea stars and crabs at Lady Musgrave Island and Fitzroy Lagoon near Gladstone," Tourism Australia recommends.
"Explore the SS Yongala shipwreck from Townsville and the Llewellyn shipwreck from Mackay."
The World Heritage-listed natural wonder stretches nearly 2,000km along the coast of Queensland, from Cape York to Bundaberg, and boasts amazing diving spots in Heron and Lizard Islands.
