We went in March 2016

We just got back from a trip there last month (March). I think It's a good time to go. The water was very warm. We had to wear stinger suits but did not mind as they kept us from getting sunburned.

Here is a link to the pictures from our trip.

Due to reports of bleaching in north we're thinking central to south reef and specifically Heron Island, at least for a week.
