Free ebook: Townsville’s secret side of the Great Barrier Reef

Print Friendly

When someone says Townsville, do you think Great Barrier Reef?

No? Don’t worry, you’re not alone.

Townsville North Queensland has been keeping a few cards close to its chest, known only by the savvy locals who have been savouring the lack of crowds, 320 days of sunshine, and pristine conditions found in the central Great Barrier Reef.

But it’s about time we let the cat out of the bag because it just wouldn’t be fair to keep this on the down-low any longer: Say hello to our FREE ebook, The secret side of the Great Barrier Reef.

The secret side of the Great Barrier Reef ebook

Inside you’ll uncover reef experiences you never knew existed (and will soon by high priority on your bucket list).

From stretch yellow Jeep tours around the only Great Barrier Reef island with its own postcode, and one of the best shipwreck dives in the world – the SS Yongala – to camping safaris on a deserted island, thrown in with scuba diving and snorkelling over remote (aka untouched!) underwater metropolises.

But epic dives and pristine snorkelling spots aside, there’s no better destination to get schooled on this World Heritage-listed wonderland, still feel like an explorer while you enjoy a patch of the 2300-kilometre coral conglomerate all to yourself, and just kick back and relax on a secluded beach.

Here’s a sneak peek:

10 ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef from Townsville

From private helicopter rides to twilight ‘Sip and Sail’ cruises, to the self-guided snorkel trails off Magnetic Island, there are plenty of ways to explore the Great Barrier Reef when you base yourself in Townsville.

Great Barrier Reef Safari

If eat, sleep, dive, repeat sounds like your kinda jam, you’ll be itching to book yourself on this camp and dive safari to Pelorus Island. (Never heard it? She’s one Townsville’s best-kept-secrets!).

Top scuba diving spots and courses from Townsville

If you’re keener than a parrotfish on coral to discover the underwater world, then getting your scuba certification at one of these locales should be top of the #lifegoals list.

There's something about Magnetic Island

Affectionately known as ‘the island’ to locals, Magnetic Island is the laidback home of around 2500 happy residents and an epically diverse natural landscape. But to truly appreciate her in all her forms, you’ve got to go beyond the bitumen and explore via land, sea and sky.
