The Great Barrier Reef is home to some of the most unique creatures on the planet
The Barrier Reef’s colourful coral gardens are a playground (and an all-you-can-eat buffet) for around 1,500 types of fish, in every shape, size and pattern you can imagine. From tiny, world-famous Nemo (clownfish) to huge Humpback whales, marine creatures in their millions swim around the Reef every day. Sharks, rays, dugongs, turtles, dolphins… you can see them all, in real life, in their natural habitat. That’s pretty special.
Ecologically, the Great Barrier Reef is so important that Sir David Attenborough devoted an entire TV series to it. And you can’t argue with Sir David.
