Weekday Wanderlust: Great Barrier Reef, QLD

Coral for days.

Have you been staring at your computer screen for the last 30 minutes trying to turn that spreadsheet into a white sandy beach? Or maybe you’re dreaming of an adventure holiday in a far-off place when you really should be ploughing through that mound of work piling up on your desk? Don’t worry, AWOL understands. It’s why every afternoon we’ll be sending you some travel inspiration – from a beautiful image on Flickr to a #nofilter stunner from Instagram. We’re calling this series “Weekday Wanderlust”, and who knows? Maybe our daily missive will help you make those travel dreams a reality.

You don’t even need to stretch that far for today’s dose of travel inspiration – we’re dreaming of the turquoise-blue waters of northern Queensland with @thesydlist. Exploring the colourful and vast floors of the Great Barrier Reef seems perfect right about now.
