Celebrate the Internationthalaal Year of the Coral Reef by discovering just what is so great about Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. With 1625 species of fish, one-third of the world’s coral species and a mosaic of different reefs along its 2300km length, every day and night on the Great Barrier Reef delivers a different and memorable “David Attenborough” moment.


Here’s a few Great Barrier Reef facts to get you started. The Great Barrier Reef is the only place in the world where you can swim with Dwarf Minke Whales, float over colourful giant clams and look for six of the world’s seven species of turtle.

Whether your clients like their Reef adventures big or small, wet or dry; exceptional visitor experiences can be found in Tropical North Queensland, the gateway to this World Heritage area.
And the perfect place to base your clients? Thala Beach Nature Reserve in Port Douglas!

Combine Thala’s special on-site nature experiences with spectacular local adventures to the Great Barrier Reef. Outer Reef Snorkelling and Diving trips can be arranged from Thala as well as fishing trips, sea kayaking and whale watching.
