King Reef is the largest fringing reef on the great barrier reef and it is a long way to the next one!
It is part of the Great Barrier Reef and heritage listed. King Reef features hundreds of examples of all three coral types - hard, soft and flowering. The warm, shallow waters are home to a myriad of marine life including tropical reef fish, the world-famous painted crays, manta rays and giant clams. Our beach is a rare nesting ground for turtles and you will see many different species of turtle on King Reef.
On our winter low tides King Reef is exposed and it is possible to walk out to explore this fascinating reef.
