Up in Northern Queensland, amongst the jungle and boarding the Great Barrier Reef you will find, the tropical city, Cairns. From Cairns it’s possible to arrange visits or overnight stays in the tropical rainforest or diving day trips on the Great Barrier Reef.
I wanted to see the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef for a long time. It was declared a World Natural Heritage by UNESCO in 1981 and is also known as one of the seven worlds of nature. The existence of the Great Barrier Reef and its biodiversity is seriously threatened by man-made global warming and the resulting oceanic acidification.
As I had been totally excited about snorkeling when I was on Maldives, I was looking forward to snorkel the Great Barrier Reef 🙂
On our way back was rough swell, so some passengers got sick…
