Dive The Great Barrier Reef

The Great Barrier Reef is a World Heritage Site, one of the seven natural wonders of the world and is the only living structure that can be seen from the moon. Fortunately no moon travel is required by myself, just a four hour trip aboard a domestic airline and I am on the doorstep of nature's premier playground.

The ideal way to visit the reef is aboard one of the fleet of long range live aboard dive boats. These modern and comfortable vessels stay at sea from two to ten days visiting new reefs each day, allowing extended dive times on an endless variety of coral and tropical fish life. . . . more

In the morning an oceanic reef will blow your mind with its extravagently coloured gorgonians and soft corals as schools pelagic fish pass overhead and clouds of colourful fish go about their business.

Later the same day the dive boat could well be inside a lagoon type reef where life moves at a slower pace. Anenomes flourish with their resident fish, shrimps and crabs, small gobi fish share burrows in the sand with a shrimp that cannot see, colourful nudibranchs graze over coral and turtles swim lazily on no obvious time schedule. All of this life is set against a backdrop of shape, structure and texture formed by over 340 species of reef forming hard corals and a further 60 species of decorating soft corals.

Memories fade with the passage of time and I am indeed fortunate to have these photographs to remind me just what a special place the Great Barrier Reef is.
