The Great Barrier Reef is one of the greatest wonders of the world, and it’s not hard to see why this heritage-listed site attracts over a million visitors from around the globe to its magnificent waters every single year. The beautiful formation stretches for 2,300 kilometres of the Queensland coastline, from Torres Strait in the north, to southern Queensland. It’s formed by more than 2,000 individual reefs ranging from one hectare to more than 10,000 square hectares. The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living organism on Earth that is so grand that it can be seen from all the way in outer space.
While large and mighty, the reef is also a fragile ecosystem that’s home to more that 1,500 species of fish, 360 types of hard coral and almost half of the world’s soft coral population. It provides shelter to some of the rarest species of fish and endangered turtles; and is a favourite breeding ground for migrating humpback whales. The Great Barrier reef is truly one of the most exciting and unparalleled travel destination for individuals, couples, groups and families- as there is something for everyone to love.
