The Guardian reveals Australia’s best place to see the reef
The new three-part documentary by David Attenborough and the BBC about the Great Barrier Reef is generating a lot of interest in Australia’s natural wonder.
Unfortunately, the documentary also talks about many parts where the reef has died due development and pollution.
Thankfully a recent article by The Guardian reveals the places in Australia where you can see beautiful, healthy and vibrant sections of the reef with thousands of fish.

According to The Guardian, Townsville, which is south of Cairns, is Australia’s ‘best kept secret’ because the tropical city, surrounded by beaches, does not spend much money advertising to tourists.
This means tours to the reef are in small groups and led by friendly guides.
Read the Guardian’s story:
Diving and Snorkeling in Townsville
Marine Tourism Operators, Adrenalin Snorkel and Dive offer adventurous trips to the outer Great Barrier Reef, four days a week and explorations of the popular Yongola Wreck Dive twice a week, departing from Townsville and Magnetic Island.
