The Great Barrier Reef - Queensland

The Breathtaking Great Barrier Reef

A genuine under-sea paradise, The Great Barrier Reef was classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1981. It constitutes the largest coral reef in the world and houses a multitude of aquatic species (350 species of coral and 1,500 species of crustacean and colorful tropical fish). Come and explore the "8th Wonder of the World," between the land and the sea. 

If you have had enough of the stress at work, you can no longer stand the sight of your boss and you have succomed to the daily grind, then you are definitely in need of some fresh air! 

What could be better than jetting off for the other end of the world by yourself or with family, to criss-cross over 2,000 km of Queensland coast in a motorhome, and discover the Great Barrier Reef by snorkeling, scuba diving, or by boat?


For this, we advise you to take a trip during the late-spring/early-summer (September, October, November) to the Queensland coast, in order to benefit from mild and warm temperatures, but mostly to avoid the touristic high-season. Start your road-trip by motorhome, campervan, or 4wd in Sydney and head up the coast, or just rent direct from Cairns which offers direct access to the Reef.  

If for some strange and mysifying reason you find yourself tired of idyllic beaches, stretches of turquoise water, or surfing until sunset, you can always head out for a hike in the Daintree Rainforest, which spreads from Cooktown to Townsvill in northern Queensland.   

This trip will take your breath away, especially if you opt for a session of freediving!
