Dive into Australia

The world’s largest coral reef, and the only living organism visible from space, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is a wonderful sight to behold, whether from the air, where the network of 3,000 reefs separated by pure white sand create a patchwork of life, or up close, where the intricacy of life is reflected in its many and varied inhabitants – there are around 1,500 species of fish alone. 

Since 1975, it has been protected by the governments of Australia and Queensland, to limit various activities and secure its safety for future generations to enjoy. Tourism, however, is still very much an important part of its conservation, bringing in an estimated $3 billion a year and it has risen to the top of many a traveller’s ‘must visit’ list. Sailing aboard small, glass-bottomed boats and slipping on a pair of flippers and a snorkel and diving in is the best way to experience the magic rainbow of colours and ‘other worldliness’ for yourself. And what better time to tick it off your list, than in 2016, when Britain’s most celebrated naturalist is revisiting it, almost 60 years after his first documentary. Walk (or swim!) in Sir David Attenborough’s footsteps on all of Titan’s exceptional Australian itineraries.
