For years now we have all been told that all action on the great barrier reef happened north of Cairns but, most of the best diving and Coral islands on the Great Barrier Reef can be found in it's southern region. Starting just north of Bundaberg, this part of the reef offers everything plus more than the northern destinations offer. What's more it's only a 5 hour drive north from Brisbane.
We visit Lady Musgrave Island, which is often described as the “jewel in the crown” of the Great Barrier Reef. It is the ideal place to snorkel, dive or just relax. There is a full range of activities for the day including coral viewing, , snorkelling, fish feeding and island walks.    
Camping on Lady Musgrave Island is an experience for all the family. Plently of fishing for dad, lots for the kids to do, but unfortunatly not much in the way of shopping for mum.
