The Great Barrier Reef is probably the most famous scuba diving destination, so when going to Australia we could not miss it. Most boats disembarks from Cairns and we were recommended going to the outer Barrier Reef to get the best of it. Therefore we went for a liveaboard staying 4 days at sea.

Our expectations was maybe a bit too high so we ended up a little disappointed. The reef is ok, but not in great condition. You get to see quite a lot of sharks (Whitetip and Grey Reef Shark), a few turtles and the usual reef fishes. Having been to a lot of great reefs around the world the Great Barrier Reef is not in the top 5 and we would not recommend going to Australia just for the scuba diving. But if you are there it might be worth a visit, especially if you're not an experienced diver.
