I have been thinking of taking on Australia as my next traveling destination! Having been reading and looking at pictures of this beautiful place makes me want to jump on a plan and fly there right now. For those of you who have gone to Australia, I am sure you know what I mean that the country is filled with beauty and crystal clear waters!
Here is juts a little information about this magical wonder: the Great Barrier Reef is an extensive natural feature that extends over three thousand miles at the coast of Queensland, Australia. It is a natural phenomenon worth to be seen since it is one of the top Seven Wonders of the World. The Great Barrier Reef is located in the Queensland section of Australia. The Great Barrier Reef runs for more than 2300km along the northeast coast of Queensland from Bundaberg in the south to the tip of Cape York in the north. It is the largest natural feature on earth and can be seen from space. About 1.9 million tourists and about 4.9 million recreational visitors travel on the Great Barrier Reef every year. The reef contains over 2,900 reefs which includes 760 fringing reefs, and 300 coral cays. Whales are normally encountered during the winter months when they migrate up to the reef from Antarctic waters to mate and give birth. One of the most spectacular visitors during this period is the Humpback. They are seen in the shallow coastal waters of the reef ranging from Hervey Bay to Port Douglas. Whale watching is conducted by a number of tourist operators through these areas.
I think Australia should be on everyones places to visit list 🙂
