Holmes Reef Survey

Great Barrier Reef and Coral Sea Expedition: Survey 4
Holmes Reef is a superb twin reef system 240km east of Cairns. The Holmes reef system covers some 450 square kilometres and is home to an amazing range of species of both fish and corals.

The water quality actually becomes clearer the further you are from Australia making Holmes Reef fantastic for diving and photography. The reef structures at Holmes are breathtaking, a 2m depth leads to sudden 40m drop offs with undersea-spikes and caves.
