Luxury on the Great Barrier Reef
Luxury on the Great Barrier Reef
Luxury by the Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is an experience not to be missed – a treasured memory and an experience for all ages. Whether you want to scuba dive, snorkel, swim, view the magnificent tropical wildlife or simply relax on the clear blue water, there are many different ways to experience the Great Barrier Reef.
The Reef 4 Kids!
Great Barrier Reef Coral Cays and Islands are the best options for people with younger children (under 12) or for families where all members don't want to swim. All islands and cays offer excellent snorkelling directly from the beach with a large variety of fish and coral to be seen.
The Outer Reef
If you want to go further out; most Outer Great Barrier Reef tour companies visit two or more reef locations and all activity is on the boat, or under the water. Because Outer Great Barrier Reef trips do not visit dry land during the day, these trips are generally unsuitable for children under 12. Families with older children however will love the Outer Reef as the snorkelling is fantastic and the variety of marine life is unsurpassed.
The Reef for ALL ages
If snorkelling isn’t your thing, you can lounge the day away on a Pontoon. These are a moored platform providing a stable structure for visitors on the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Family pontoons are roomy, great for kids and offer fantastic snorkelling and diving options. Pontoon day trips are ideal for families of mixed age children, or where some family members do not want to swim (or can't swim!) and others are strong swimmers and want to spend all day in the water. All pontoons have an underwater observatory built and many extra features and tours to keep you busy like semi-submersible glass bottom boat tours, buffet lunch, introductory diving, helicopter joy flights and many more.
Return to Luxury!
After a day of breathtaking beauty on the water of the Great Barrier Reef, you can come back to the contemporary and unique 4.5 star luxury apartments at Piermonde Apartments. This supremely spacious property features two and three bedroom self contained apartments with full kitchen and laundry facilities. Apartments feature large, private balconies with sweeping views of the city, the harbour or the hinterland. Put the air conditioning on and take a siesta, or have a swim in the outdoor pool and spa. If you want to stay in for dinner then a barbeque on the sundeck and BBQ area is the perfect ending for a wonderful day with the family on your well-earned holiday.

Stayed during Easter in a 3 B/r with our grown up family. Great location and terrific views. We have stayed in quite a lot of accommodation in Cairns and this rates high for a large family.
