Default visiting the Coral Reef

We are off to Sydney and Queensland next month and are keen to visit one of the islands of the Coral Reef.
We would like to stay overnight on 1 of the islands, but we worked out it would cost over £400 pounds!! (Heron Island) There are 5 of us 2 adults and 3 kids, so the boat trip was over £200 just to get there.
Has anyone been on a day trip to one of the southern islands, is it worth it time wise?
Where is the best place to catch the day trips from ?
Are there any cheaper options of staying on one of the islands?


Any advice appreciated.

Hi tinaj, You could try Airlie Beach as a startpoint. There are some lovely small
islands there too, although I don't see the point of staying at an island...
