Overview

The Southern Great Barrier Reef is the official start of the one of the world's great wonders. Boasting colourful coral cays, authentic seaside Town of 1770 and island jewels, the Southern Great Barrier Reef - Lady Musgrave Island - provides a pristine and picture perfect getaway to experience all the reef has to offer. An underwater oasis is waiting to be discovered by you as you pop on your snorkel and mask to reveal one of the Great Barrier Reef's biggest swimming pools at Lady Musgrave Island. The protected lagoon is truly unique on this coral cay island, where you can play castaway on a bare bones camping adventure or take our Day Trip to have great memories of your unique experience.

Absolutely fantastic operator. 10 out of 10 to the whole crew. Great fun day out. 8 of us travelled out on Friday. Magic. I will definitely recommend to everyone I know. We will most certainly use 1770 Reef again in the future

I had a wonderful day out at Lady Musgrave Island. The crew and tour guides from 1770reef were very helpful, friendly and informative. I left very happy to have seen a diverse range of wildlife in a near-pristine environment on Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef.
