WALK TO THE REEF
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.
