Experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef at the world\'s largest living coral reef aquarium.
Reef HQ, formerly known as the Great Barrier Reef Aquarium, was opened on 24 June 1987 and is the world\'s largest living coral reef aquarium. Its innovative exhibits provide a real life encounter of the Great Barrier Reef. The main attraction is a two and a half million litre coral reef exhibit that replicates a natural reef ecosystem. As the Reef Education Centre for the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Reef HQ is known as a centre of excellence in marine education. Reef HQ exists to inspire everyone to care for the Great Barrier Reef. It is operated on a cost-recovery basis and relies heavily on sponsorship and donations for its commercial viability.
