Tourism is the main drawcard for the Great Barrier Reef. People visit the reef for its beautiful colours and clear, pristine waters which are ideal for snorkelling or scuba diving. As well, in the far north, people can have the best of both worlds - it is where the "rainforest meets the sea".
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the natural wonders of the world. There are many Great Barrier Reef cruises like Ocean Spirit, Quicksilver and Sunlover Reef Cruises which takes visitors to the different reef locations for some incredible island activities.
