Wistari Reef is a shallow, coral reef platform reef in the southern section of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, about 50 miles east of the mainland town of Gladstone. It is adjacent to Heron Island, separated only by a deep-sea channel. In the winter months, large numbers of humpback whales pass through this channel on their migratory journey up north from Antarctica.
