You can swim, snorkel, dive and sail the World Heritage–listed Great Barrier Reef, a living masterpiece so big it can be seen from outer space. It stretches more than 2,000 kilometers along the Queensland coast, from the mainland towns of Port Douglas to Bundaberg. Hop between the pristine, palm-fringed islands on top. Then, explore the rainbow-colored coral islands and marine life below.
