Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system in the world. In fact, it is the largest natural feature on earth and can be seen from space. It is home to thousands of marine animals and a truly beautiful place. Located off the North Queensland Coast of Australia it is a playground for whales, dlophins and tourists alike. The Great Barrier Reef is a system of coral reefs that supports the planet’s most complex ecosystem. The Great Barrier Reef was declared a Marine Park in 1975, only 6 years later in 1981 it was designated a World Heritage Area.

  • The Great Barrier Reef is over 2000 kilometers long
  • 3000 separate coral reefs and over 900 islands making up the Great Barrier Reef
  • The Reef is home to the planet’s most complex ecosystem

The giant clam which enjoys the warm waters surrounding the Great Barrier Reef, is the largest living bivalve mollusc.
At times weighing more than 200kg, these bottom feeding behemoths have an average lifespan of around 100 years in the wild. Giant clams can be found all the way from East Africa to Fiji.
