As the largest coral reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef includes over 900 islands, over 2,900 separate reefs, and supports one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world.
The reef stretches 2,300 km along the north eastern coast of Australia and it covers over 133,000 square miles (344,000 sq km).
Time to explore!
A large part of the reef is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which helps to limit the impact of human use, such as fishing and tourism.
The Great Barrier Reef has long been known to and used by the Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and is an important part of local groups' cultures and spirituality.
Nowadays the Reef is a very popular tourist destination especially from Cairns and the Whitsundays.
Did you know that over two million people are visiting the Great Barrier Reef each year??
Good connecting flights from Europe or America and cheap direct flights from Asia or Indonesia transfer hundreds of tourists to tropical Cairns everyday.
