Island Resorts activities in Australia.
Marine life is in abundance and perfect for diving and snorkelling. The varied colours of the reef's fish and other marine life will astound the visitor with colour combinations that artists haven't even dreamed of. Several islands of the Great Barrier Reef are built on coral cays and many have their own fringing reef and national parks are common on the islands and park rules apply. Island resort activities vary according to the locale and style of each resort. 

Typical activities are swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, coral viewing, reef walking, sailing, yacht charter, jet skiing, parasailing, sailboarding, kayaking, catamarans, canoes, big game fishing and whale watching.

The Great Barrier Reef stretches more than 2000 kilometres along the coastline of Queensland.

More than 2900 individual reefs and 71 coral islands make up the Great Barrier Reef. Islands and reefs are typically in remote locations. Access is via resort stays, day trips with tour operators or self-sail rentals. The waters of the Great Barrier Reef provide the world's busiest and most varied marine habitats.

The Great Barrier Reef is of such pristine condition that it was listed as by the World Heritage Trust as a protected site and is therefore managed by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Authority to ensure that its beauty is maintained for many generations to come.
