Great Barrier Reef

The UNESCO World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area is Australia’s largest and most valuable natural asset with one of the world’s most unique collections of biodiversity. It is recognised internationally as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, offering outstanding natural beauty and memorable visitor experiences.  Stretching 2,300 kilometres along the Queensland coastline from Bundaberg in the south to Cape York in the north, the Great Barrier Reef is approximately 348,000km2 in size with over 2,900 coral reefs and 1,050 islands and coral cays.

We encourage our local tourism industry and community here on the Southern Great Barrier Reef to help spread the positive message and support a number of fantastic tourism programs.
