Before coming to Australia we weren't really aware how amazing the Great Barrier Reef was. But now having seen and learnt about it we realise why it's a natural wonder of the world. It measures 2300km long and covers an area of 35million hectares. Basically it's ridiculously big. We had donned our flippers and were equipped with mask and snorkel, it was ...
