Cairns - Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef
Dubbed the Gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns is the ultimate location in Queensland for accessing the Great Barrier Reef’s best coral cays and islands. Snorkelling and diving tours depart daily from Cairns, Far North Queensland, where, in just under an hour’s journey via catamaran, the Inner Barrier Reef is ready to be explored.
The Great Barrier Reef spans 1,500 miles in the Coral Sea next to Queensland with Cairns being a prime holiday destination that’s situated just opposite its most sought-after diving sites. Whether you want to swim, snorkel, scuba dive or sail, the Great Barrier Reef via Cairns is an experience guaranteed to last a lifetime!
Great Barrier Reef Island Day Trips
Green Island and Fitzroy Island are less than 20 miles from Cairns, both offering unforgettable day trips with activities that include snorkelling, diving, rainforest walks, island pampering and more. By boat, these two islands are reachable in under an hour from Cairns, making them ideal if you’re looking for a rewarding first-time experience on the Great Barrier Reef.
Both Green Island and Fitzroy Island offer exciting snorkelling and diving opportunities in their protected coral cays with marine life to see up-close, including tropical fish, sea turtles and stingrays. Explore the lush rainforest and white sand on each island, with the larger Fitzroy Island being notably famous for its award-winning beach, Nudey Beach.
Snorkelling in the Outer Barrier Reef
For adventurous holidaymakers, the outer reefs offer a superior underwater experience. Coral reef sites such as Hastings Reef, Thetford Reef, Milln Reef, Flynn Reef and Norman Reef will take over an hour to reach via catamaran from Cairns but provide more colourful reefs, diverse marine life and clearer ocean visibility to take it all in.
The closest are Thetford Reef and horseshoe-shaped Hastings Reef, both 30 miles from Cairns with shallow and deep diving areas presenting soft and hard corals, schools of tropical fish, turtles, clams and more. Milln Reef and Norman Reef are popular night diving locations, with Flynn Reef - 35 miles from Cairns - boasting friendly reef sharks, octopuses, eels and rays if you’re seeking plenty to see.
