One of life's great adventures is to experience the Barrier Reef from Port Douglas in Queensland. The main tour operator is the Quicksilver Group which runs several large catamarans. Out at the reef they have a moored platform for berthing and to support swimming, diving or just feeding the fish if you prefer. There is also a glass bottom boat and a helicopter for aerial viewing. All-in-all a trip to the reef is a day well spent.
For any who may be dreaming of changing their latitude I invite you all to visit, explore and enjoy:
