Walk to the Reef

Kurrimine Beach is one of the closest beaches to the Great Barrier Reef - we are so close that we can walk out to explore King Reef on very low tides.

To visit the reef usually involves a boat trip with seventy plus other guests and a cost in excess of $150! Well here at Kurrimine Beach you can walk out and explore the reef for free – that’s absolutely no charge. The only rule that we have here at the Kurrimine Beach Holiday Park is that anyone who picks up a crayfish must share it at happy hour!

We escort a group of our guests out to the reef one day each month and take up to 30 guests at a time. If you would like to join us bring some shoes with you that you don't mind getting wet - reef shoes are perfect! It is approximately a 800m walk through thigh high water to get out to the reef and usually takes us about 30 - 45 mins.   The dates listed below are the only dates where tides are low enough to walk to the reef.
