The Great Barrier Reef is Australia’s natural wonder stretching 2,000 kilometres long off the coast of Queensland and consisting of over 3000 coral reefs. Due to its size, it is possible to experience the reef via entry points as far north as Cairns and Cape York or Bundaberg in the south. Whilst Australia is quite large (about the same size as continental USA), the Great Barrier Reef is a very accessible destination that can be reached by air, sea, rail, bus or road. Whether you are here on a short visit or are planning to take your time exploring the Australian East Coast on a road trip this information guide will help you decide how to get here.
