Visiting the Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia’s greatest drawcards, and we are lucky enough to have it right on our doorstep here in Port Douglas.

People have travelled from all over the world to discover the glorious GBR and for great reason. This global phenomenon is one that you do not want to miss – take every chance you have in 2022 to explore the wonders of the GBR!

There are various ways to explore the GBR from Port Douglas – here is a list of recommended experiences to ensure that you have the ultimate reef adventure to suit your interests.


Quicksilver offers an iconic Great Barrier Reef experience that has been known and loved in Port Douglas for decades. The Quicksilver pontoon tour encompasses all that you need for the ultimate GBR exploration – not only can you snorkel and scuba dive your way through the reef, but there are a range of inclusive ‘non-swimmer’ activities that gives everyone a chance to discover the GBR. There is semi-submersible coral viewing, an underwater ocean observatory, ocean walkers and heavenly helicopter experiences just to name a few.
