Emerging out of the natural wonder of the Great Barrier Reef is the famous Heart Reef. Discovered in 1974 by a local charter plane company, this is a not to be missed site. It is made up completely of natural coral and organisms into the shape of an everyday heart. This magical piece of nature can be viewed from the air, either by helicopter, seaplane or light aircraft.

Comments, reviews and questions by other travellers

How wide is the reef and how far off shore is it

Does anyone know anything else about the Heart Reef?

I need some more information for my science project. I don't know if there is very much information but I'm hoping there is, if not i will have to change the reef.

Heart Reef is a part of the Great Barrier Reef system, so maybe you can expand your project to include the whole system.
