Where is it? Just off the Queensland coast

You’re guaranteed to find a great family holiday on one of the 600 islands along the 3000km-long Great Barrier Reef. The kids will love playing in one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and there are adventurous day trips to be had, from snorkeling and wakeboarding to glass-bottom boat trips. A great base has always been Hamilton Island (pictured right). Dunk Island is another family-friendly resort, but it unfortunately took a beating from Cyclone Yasi. Show your support for one of the country’s favourite reef holiday destinations by booking a trip here after August 31, when it’s due to reopen for business. (Hamilton Island was unaffected.)
