Planning a Great Barrier Reef family vacation

The Great Barrier Reef is an ideal vacation spot for those who love sea life, water sports, or just want a relaxing beach vacation with the family. Visitors can get up close and personal with hundreds of different species and types of sea life as they snorkel or dive. In Townsville, visitors can take a dive next to the Yongala Wreck where they can see the remains of the ship that sank in 1911. The Strand in Townsville also features 2 kilometres of fun with a water park, playgrounds, a fishing jetty, restaurants, pools, live entertainment and, of course, the ocean.

For travellers staying in Townsville, just a few hours’ travel will get them to the beautiful Whitsundays, a World Heritage Site, where they can fish, swim and sail in some of the clearest and bluest waters on earth.
