Resort Description

Meridian Port Douglas is a sophisticated couples dive retreat offering self-catered accommodation and a 5* PADI dive center in walking distance.

Plunge below the surface to discover the world-class marine life of the Great Barrier Reef and spot clown fish, swaying anemones, colorful corals, and sea turtles. Diving at the edge of Australia's continental shelf really is spectacular!

Centrally-located, Meridian Port Douglas offers the best of both worlds. A quiet, adults-only retreat with your own kitchen, a private balcony and living space, located only 100 meters from the Macrossan Street restaurant strip. Here you'll find shops, lively restaurants and bars.

After a full day of diving with Quicksilver Connections PADI 5* Dive Center, head off for a sunset sailing cruise, visit the day spa for a massage or simply relax with a cocktail by the lagoon-style pool.

Explore diving around the Meridian Port Douglas

Best dive sites in Great Barrier Reef

Ribbon Reefs, Northern Great Barrier Reef – This area is known for a variety of pristine dive experiences. In late June and July, you have the chance to see dwarf Minke whales. At Cod Hole, you’ll see how the site got its name as giant potato cod surround you. Pixie Pinnacle is a wonderful example of a coral bommie that rises from a depth of 40 metres/130 feet. Also, Challenger Bay is a hotspot for cuttlefish encounters.

Osprey Reef – Only accessible via liveaboards departing from Cairns or Port Douglas, this exposed coral mesa sits in the middle of the Coral Sea far from anything. North Horn is perhaps its most famous dive site for its shark feed. Around the Bend displays colorful soft coral and offers the chance to see manta rays as they pass through this site.

SS Yongala – The Great Barrier Reef’s signature wreck is the SS Yongala, a 109-metre/357-foot luxury passenger ship that went down during a 1911 cyclone. On this wreck everything is supersized – sea snakes the size of your bicep and sea turtles so big they look prehistoric. Every single space on the wreck is covered in colorful life. It’s worth several dives to try and see it all.

The Whitsundays – Comprising 74 idyllic islands, the Whitsundays are perfect for divers looking to complement their diving with multiple activities, such as sailing, island exploring or just lying on top rated beaches. While scuba diving, expect colorful shallow coral gardens and a variety of marine life like passing green sea turtles, patrolling white tip reef sharks and striking Napoleon wrasse.

Heron Island – On the Great Barrier Reef’s southern reaches, this famed resort island is accessible via ferry or helicopter. Scuba dive on a bommie that serves as a manta ray cleaning station and also watch for crowds of jacks, barracuda, eels, sharks, eagle rays and very curious sea snakes. Other dive sites feature sea turtles and nudibranchs.

HMAS Brisbane – Off Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is the great wreck dive of the former HMAS Brisbane, a 133-metre/433-foot guided missile destroyer. This purpose-sunk artificial reef went down in 2005 and sits upright in 15-18 metres/50-60 feet of water. There’s a lot of ship to see and a lot of marine life that now call HMAS Brisbane home.

What to see

Everything from dwarf minke whales, sea turtles, manta rays, sharks, carpet sharks, sea snakes and cuttlefish.

And don't forget bumphead parrotfish, leopard moray eels, potato cod and macro life.

After all, the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland is the world's largest reef system so you can truly expect to see a bit of just about everything.
