Exploring Australia's Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is one of Australia's most remarkable features and one of the Seven Wonders of the World. See why this impressive coral has earned that distinction.

Exploring Australia's Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is made up of more than 3000 other reef systems, making it the world's largest coral reef – even larger than the Great Wall of China. In fact, the reef is actually visible from space. The abundance of tropical islands with sandy beaches create an allure that has made the area one of the most popular tourist destinations worldwide.

 

Take your tour under water where you can get up close to the vibrant coral gardens as well as various marine life such as thousands of breeds of tropical fish, dolphins, rays, sea turtles, and giant clams who have lived under Australia's shores for more than 120 years.

 

As a World Heritage site, the Great Barrier Reef is home to endangered species like the sea cow (dugong) and the impressive sea turtle. It also serves as a breeding ground for the humpback whales who migrate there from the Antarctic each year.

 

There are many local operators who can take you over and under the sea as you explore the marvels of the Great Barrier Reef.
