Fill your days exploring by land or sea and visit the town’s treasure trove of activities.
Home to one of the world’s top dive sites-the historic S.S. Yongala Shipwreck or see the reef without getting your feet wet – the town boasts the much-lauded Reef HQ Great Barrier Reef Aquarium. The world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, this educational centre boasts a 2.5 million litre exhibition, and a rehabilitation centre for sea turtles. The reef also brings the Museum of Underwater Art’s inaugural sculpture “Ocean Siren” to life, which can be seen from The Strand Jetty as it changes colour according to the temperature of the water. Back in town itself, there’s more than enough offerings to keep guests entertained. Days can be spent trawling the collection of cafes, boutiques and
galleries, or the wander along the waterfront promenade The Strand. Make the trek up to the top of Castle Hill to see 360-degree views and the chance to enjoy the stunning sunsets.
