Planning a Great Barrier Reef holiday? With so many experiences and sights on offer, you won’t want to leave anything to chance! A luxury holiday at the Great Barrier Reef should include a balance of dining experiences, reef activities, and sightseeing, and spectacular accommodation.

 

Our Guide On How To Plan Your Great Barrier Reef Holiday

 

1. When To Go

Though the reef and surrounding islands are bursting with life all year round, May-November is generally considered peak season. The hotter temperatures and higher rainfall outside of these months make for a less-than-ideal reef experience, especially if you only have a few days to enjoy!

2. Get Inspired

Decide what kind of Great Barrier Reef luxury holiday you’d like and get researching! If you’re into outdoor activities, look to Youtube action bloggers for inspiration, or if it’s a more low-key experience you’re after, check out Instagram travel accounts.

4. Activities

While the surroundings are a lot of what makes a holiday at the Great Barrier Reef so special, you might have to book ahead for some activities. Cruises, eco-tours, and island visits are regularly happening around the Reef, and are in high demand among visitors, so make sure you book so you don’t miss out on a unique experience.

5. Dining

After a long day of reef snorkelling and island exploring, a luxury holiday calls for a luxury dining experience! Orpheus Island Lodge’s premium contemporary menus are exclusive to guests, and include a four-course dinner degustation served in their pavilion overlooking the Coral Sea.
