panoramic view of the great barrier reef australis, islands and reefs,
The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest coral reef system.
Made up of around 3,000 individual reefs and over 900 islands,
it stretches for more than 1,600 miles, and like The Grand Canyon, it can't be shown in a few photographs.
It is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland in northeast Australia.
If you are into sailing, snorkeling or diving, there is no place in the world to match it!
Hire a catamaran and cruise at your leisure among perfect tropical islands.
With so many to choose from, it's easy to find one all to yourself -
and living-out your own desert-island fantasy is something you'll never forget!
