Discussing :: Great Barrier Reef

Why not go to the Great Barrier Reef this year, find a Great Barrier Reef Hotel, and have a Great Barrier Reef holiday?

If you have kids, staying at Club Med on Lindeman Island must be one of the best options - you never even have to see them at all if you choose not to - and I've heard the Beach Club Resort on Hamilton Island is super child friendly too. From either, it's a day trip out to the reef.

Most of the boats land at a floating resort vessel/pontoon for your time on the reef. These have all the facilities you could need and offer snorkelling (with full gear included). If you are not one to venture into the water, the base I visited had huge glass underwater viewing windows, as well as glass bottomed boat rides and helicopter trips over the reef.

The rest of the family went snorkelling but apart from the experience, said the coral was pretty mediocre and largely burnt off. I guess this is because the locations is chosen is shallow and easily accessible for tourists who overwork it. The fish were fantastic I believe but don’t go there expecting to see tons of brilliant corals or you may be disappointed.

I chose the helicopter ride (extra) but it was truly spectacular, giving a totally different perspective of the size and amazing colour of the reef. We flew over that incredible heart shaped bit (see below). It was really memorable and well worth the cost.
