Snorkelling and diving - Rockhampton to Townsville
Capricorn Reef Diving in North Rockhampton focuses on diving tours and some snorkelling in Keppel Bay Islands National Park, highlighting Egg Rock as one of the greatest little-known dive sites in Australia, with rich anemones, coral trout, clownfish and coral gardens. Bowen is one of the few areas where you can snorkel straight off the mainland, and has some lovely reefs just a few metres offshore. Usually calm, it is a great place to teach snorkelling to kids among the parrotfish, coral trout, blue tangs, wrasse, eels and humbugs. Horseshoe and Murray bays are recommended, but check with the Bowen Visitor Centre for other spots that are favoured by locals.
In the Whitsunday area, Odyssey H2O at Cannonvale near Airlie Beach offers a doubledive and snorkelling trip.
