Hardy Reef in the Whitsundays is one of the spectacular outer reefs along Australia’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. You can access it via day boat, private charter, or helicopter. It is a magical spot for snorkelling and diving and you can even spend the night on a pontoon with Fantasea’s Reef Sleep program. Thanks @Sue Henly!

    I always try and look for this reef when flying to North Queensland. The view on a clear day is breathtaking make sure you have a window seat..

Enjoy the beautiful outdoors year-round on the Gold Coast. Take in diverse scenery of white sandy beaches, golf courses, the hinterland and rainforests. View the luxurious Palazzo Versace hotel.

Queensland is where Australia shines. See the Great Barrier Reef and The Daintree Rainforest. Experience Brisbane, Queensland's cultural hub and enjoy the attractions on The Gold Coast.
