Bedarra Island belongs to group of islands located between Townsville, Cairns and Dunk Island, off the North Queensland Coast. Since it is accessible only by Dunk Island, there are virtually no crowds on this island, making it a good private option for people seeking solitude. The Island has many natural features, but the biggest one is its proximity to the Great Barrier Reef. This natural phenomenon is easily accessible by the island, and is one of the reasons why people come here.
The Great Barrier Reef
Counted amongst one of the seven natural wonders of the world, the Great Barrier Reef stretches along the Queensland Coast, covering an area of 3000 km. It is a marine garden that is home to varied marine life, including many endangered creatures. Species like Sea Cow and Green Sea Turtle can be spotted here. But the reef is mainly home to corals, molluscs, dolphins, rays, and colourful and rare tropical fish. Hence, the Great Barrier Reef is protected by UNESCO, and even has been declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Island to the Reef
Since this area is so sensitive, there are special licenses given to a select few operators to arrange tourist trips to the Great Barrier Reef. Therefore, if you are staying on Bedarra Island, you can charter yourself a snorkelling trip to the reef, and check out the marine life present in it.
