We stayed at the Sea Temple Resort and Spa, travelled with Poseidon Cruises to the Agincourt Ribbon Reefs, visited the Daintree Rainforest, Mossman Gorge and the amazing Wildlife Habitat BUT the main reason we travelled to Australia was to scuba dive on the Great Barrier Reef.
I’ll make this quick. It doesn’t even come close to what the Maldives has to offer. The scuba diving in the Maldives is far superior in every aspect. The coral, fish, visibility, water temp, service, boats… everything related to scuba diving is better in the Maldives. Check out my previous ports on the Maldives to read more about it.
This isn’t to say that the scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef isn’t amazing because it is. There is just better places out there. This surprised me because of the hype that this reef gets. I was expecting something spectacular and it was just ok. We still had a blast and would definitely recommend a trip to do some diving.
