Great Barrier Reef Airlie Beach, Queensland 4802
Hearts have melted over the course of flying over Heart Reef. Why? That's because the view on top is stunning, and perhaps the little coral itself is heart-shaped. Discovered in 1975 by an Air Whitsunday pilot, Heart Reef has long made itself famous in postcards for being just too picture-perfect. Many tour companies now offer satisfying trips over to the coral-infested sanctuary, with overwhelming views of Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet. No lodgings are available in Heart Reef, but if you're planning for a wedding proposal, slice up your plan to the pilot first, and book ahead in one of the many accomodations available in Airlie.
