Most people who go to Australia know the names of cities or the sites they want to see the State in which they go to., but very rarely the State of Queensland is quite large, 2.5 times the size of Texas, so there's a lot of ground to cover and a lot of sights to see along the way.

Located in Queensland, the reef spans more than 1 400 miles and begins near Papua New Guinea, and continues South along the coast of Queensland to Bundaberg (just north of Brisbane). With more than 450 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish and 4 000 types of mollusks, the reef is also various it is also colorful. Dive with turtles and manta rays off the coast of the island of Lady Elliot, dive the spectacular cay Low Isles coral off the coast of Port Douglas and Cairns, made a romantic panoramic flight on the iconic heart reef, or maybe try a Green Island diving helmet.
