One of the star attraction of Australia is "Great Barrier Reef"- home of the world's largest living structure and also one of the seven wonders of the natural world. The Reef is accessible either from Cairns or Whitsundays.
Me & my H-man went on a 3 days trip to Whitsundays and that is when I happened to visit Whitehaven Beach of Queensland, Australia. Click here for detailed information of this trip to Great Barrier Reef in my original blog.
From Airlie Beach we took a 1 day Catamaran Cruise tour that included Snorkelling (2 locations), Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet Lookout.
The fast catamaran starts from Airlie Beach at 9 am for the awesome ride passing through Hayman Island. The first stop is Snorkelling location 1 on the fringing Great Barrier Reef for corals followed by location 2 for exotic fishes. Both the locations were fantastic and any non-swimmer like me can also be part of this snorkelling group. After wrapping up with Lunch Buffet on the sailboat we went ahead to expedite the main attraction of the day. World famous Whitehaven Beach.
