Great Barrier Reef, Queensland

Temperatures on the Great Barrier Reef are still warm in April, with maximums of 29 degrees Celsius and minimums of 21.5. While this natural wonder is stunning at any season, the Great Barrier Reef is particularly impressive during the clear, warm days and cool, rainy nights of April. The water tends to be calm at this time of year, making for excellent opportunities to travel by boat, and the month is near the end of the area's stinger season. Travelling here at this time of year will also see you avoiding the peak season of the Great Barrier Reef, and there are a huge number of different tour providers to help you maximise your trip.

Knuckle and Hardy Reefs are great locations for aquatic adventures, so be sure to pack your snorkel and flippers to explore the region's underwater paradise.
