Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef The Barrier Reef of Australia is the largest in the world. It is almost 1615 miles long. This magnificent coral reef, because of its immense size, is visible from space. The barrier extends from Bundaberg to the tip of Cape York and has over 2,000 islands and more than 3,000 reefs. In terms of area, the reef is as big as Germany. In fact the barrier is nearly 135,135 square miles. In addition, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia has been listed as World Heritage by UNESCO.

Koala This endearing tree-dwelling marsupial is found in forest country in some eastern and south-eastern regions of Australia. It will eat only the leaves and shoots of about a dozen varieties of eucalypt, and for many years attempts to keep it in captivity were unsuccessful. Now, the koala is a favourite at nature reserves and sanctuaries. Its soft, grey fur, leathery nose and beady eyes give it the appearance of a small bear.
