It is the largest natural feature on earth stretching more than 1,100 miles along the northeast coast of Australia, comprising of more than 2,800 coral reefs and boasting a diversity of species, rivaled only by that of tropical rainforests.

The islands of Queensland, and the Great Barrier Reef region are Australia's crown jewels, with a choice of accommodations and activities for all budgets ranging from remote and secluded luxury resorts through  family oriented island getaways.
These Islands are the ideal destination for your Honeymoon or exotic vacation.

One way to explore the pristine islands and the Great Barrier Reef, is on board of a vessel offering comfortable accommodations, meals and plenty opportunity for island hopping, snorkeling and diving. Cruises up to 7 days.



We offer a series of guided pre-packaged tours, prepared for you by reliable tour operators, or we can design your visit to your wishes and your budget.
