Brisbane to Great Barrier Reef Day trip?? Any help?!

Does anyone have any idea whether it is possible to arrange a day trip to the great barrier reef or a surrounding island from brisbane/gold coast for a day trip? Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Many thanks,

Raj

hi Raj ... while it is "possible" ... you would spend more time travelling than enjoying the incredible beauty of the Great Barrier Reef. If you're on an exremely tight time limit ... plan to spend at least 1 night in Nth Qld (eg Cairns) ... then boat trip to the reef and return flight the next day. Better still ... take 3 days :)

thanks to the both of u,

would love to spend the night or even a couple of nights, but time really is an issue!

have had a look at lady elliott and looks pretty decent! hope the cost of a day trip isn't extortionate!

many thanks again.

Hi Raj

While Lady Elliot is exceptional for it's great reef /marine experience , the resort is only 2* eco resort.

To be honest, I wasn't planning on staying at the resort,. I just really wanted to experience a little part of the Great Barrier Reef, hopefully this is achievable through Lady Elliott Island.
