Great Barrier Reef & Cairns Kids Resorts
The Great Barrier Reef is Queensland's greatest attraction. Visible from the moon, 'The Reef' is the largest coral formation in the world. It stretches over 2,300km, covers a landmass five times the size of Japan, and consists of 2,500 individual reefs and 500 islands.
Over 400 types of corals and 1,500 species of fish outshine each other in elegance, beauty, patterns, forms and colors, making this not only one of the natural wonders of the world but the most diverse eco-system known to man. Having evolved over millions of years, nature itself is the architect of this 'World Heritage Area'.
Located at the doorstep of the world’s longest coral reef and oldest rainforest, Angsana Great Barrier Reef is the only resort in Palm Cove to enjoy absolute beach frontage to the spectacular Coral Sea that leads to the Great Barrier Reef.
Children's Acitivities in the Great Barrier Reef
Dip into the crisp waters of the resort’s three swimming pools or skim the azure waters on ski or boat excursions.
The Angsana Great Barrier Reef is all about sun, sand and surf. Try your hand at windsurfing, parasailing and water-skiing. Or immerse yourself in the sapphire-blue waters of the Coral Sea and discover the glorious marine life of the Great Barrier Reef by snorkeling or scuba diving.
You could spend leisurely days exploring the surroundings of Palm Cove with the kids, join a boat excursion, and take an adventurous hike into the rainforest. Or simply chill out with a cocktail by the beach or one of the resort’s three pools after a fun-filled day out with the family.
