Great Barrier Reef

The world’s largest coral reef is often referred to as the “eighth wonder of the world”, it is Australia’s most prized and visited natural attraction. In fact, the reef is so large that it can be clearly seen from the moon. It stretches over almost 2,500 km, from just north of Bundaberg to the bays south of Papua New Guinea. There are in excess of 900 islands, but only two dozen have some form of tourist infrastructure – the remainder is pristine wilderness and these island are also part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Australia’s largest national park. Hundreds of different fish and coral species have their home in the warm waters of the reef. Any water activity is on offer, but for good reasons, scuba diving and snorkeling would be amongst the most popular. In some areas, the actual reef formation is relatively close to the coast, whereas in other spots, a boat trip of several hours is required to reach some of the most remote – and spectacular – reefs, such as Cod Hole or the famous Ribbon Reefs.
