The Great Barrier Reef is one of the most attractive places in Australia, so it is one of the most touristic places as well; it receives around 2 million tourists a year and is considered the largest coral reef around the world because it spreads for thousands of kilometers. To see it we recommend using a helicopter.

This is one of the most natural attractions in Australia with many activities to discover this beautiful place, for example: snorkel, skin-diving, and cruise travelling to marvel at the thousands of small islands that make up a barrier with heavenly landscapes and marine ecosystems with about twenty thousand years old. The Great Barrier Reef is made up of 3 thousand coral reefs along the Queensland coast in Australia.
