What is the Aussie Way of Life?

The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef

Every year, about 2 million visitors bundle up their snorkling gear and head offshore to the Great Barrier Reef.
Located near Australia's north-east coast, the world-famous tourist attraction has been added to World Heritage lists for preservation. More than 1500 species of fish and a colourful array of corals inhabit the reef. Like many areas in Australia's north-eastern corner, the reef is subject to monsoonal weather conditions from December to February.
Many ships have run aground among the 3000 coral reefs. One of the most famous wrecks, the HMS Pandora, has been missing since 1791.
