  • I booked a flight at GSL aviation. The heart reef itself is very small, the pilot luckily announced us, otherwise I would have been probably disappointed. The real great barrier reef is impressive and the heart then that little bit extra.

  • Impressive the interaction they have with the barrier reef and its inhabitants, hundreds of different fish, turtles, mantarallas and much more. It's worth too

  • Have seen the application directly in the field. It seemed to be a dream of childhood on the magazine, dazed and is a great place to come. No doubt impressed.
