I went to the Barrier Reef as part of my holiday in Cairns. I went with the people who run the boat "The Falla". The Falla is an old wooden boat that has been maintained so that tourists can enjoy a more authentic experience than they'd get if they were going on a cruise liner. The folks on the Falla sailed us out to a part of the ocean where people who could dive get further instruction and credit towards their diving certificate and then we were taken out to Upulo Quay which is a small strip of white sand in the middle of clear blue oceans. When you're from a country where your sea is grey this is truly a great experience. ... Read the complete review

We visited the Great Barrier Reef in November 2007. My husband and I went on a day trip with Great Adventures, which we booked the day before at the ticket desk on the wharf in Cairns. It's also possible to book at the tourist office in town. We chose a trip which included a stop at Green Island on the way out to the reef. This was an excellent decision. Neither of us had snorkelled before, and at Green Island you have the opportunity to practice snorkelling from a gently sloping sandy beach rather than just being tipped out onto the somewhat daunting reef. There wasn't a huge amount to see in the water here, although perhaps we didn't go out far enough. ... Read the complete review

The Great Barier Reef is an amazing area of natural beauty. It is set off the coast of North East Australia in the state of Queenstown. It is made up of an amazing ray of different colours of coraland is simply stunning! We experienced it in two ways. 1) We went on a day trip on a catamaran from Cairns. We went with a company called 'Passions'. The staff were great and friendly, but the boat seemed a bit overcrowded, not a lot of space to relax and enjoy the sunshine! Our first stop was at a small Island called Michaelmas Cay. Here we were able to relax on the beach and go snorkelling in Reef. There is such an array of fish of all sizes and colours and we even ...

For my 50th review on Dooyoo, I wanted to write about something very special. Whilst I dabble in other reviews, travel reviews are what I like the best and whilst I have a number of reviews in the pipeline, it seems very appropriate that this review is about The Great Barrier Reef. I hope you enjoy the review as much as I enjoyed the experience...... They say it is the only living thing that can be seen from space. They say it is the largest living thing on Earth. They say it is an area of outstanding Natural Beauty. I am not too sure about the first two claims, but whoever they are, they are absolutely spot on about ... Read the complete review

As part of my recent holiday in Australia I was determined that I would visit the famous Great Barrier Reef (GBR) off the East coast. My cousin and I flew to Cairns from Adelaide - via Sydney and Brisbane (that's another story!) We arrived at our resort at 2.30am and were picked up by a coach at 7.45am for our drive to the quayside to pick up the boat that would take us out to the reef. There are a huge number of boats and planes offering all sorts of reasons why we should view the GBR with them - our tour was pre-booked by a friend so we had no expectations. We boarded a huge catameran run by the Ocean Spirit company. After paying the ... Read the complete review
