From the moon it looks like a white line in the blue-green ocean; coming in to land it resembles a never-ending mosaic of dazzling colours dotting along the Queensland coastline; and from the sea itself the Great Barrier Reef is seen to be one of nature's most remarkable living structures. The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority was established to protect and manage the delicate balance between conservation and development of the reef. The reef's great value and beauty as a natural resource has earned the marine park World Heritage status.
The wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, its origins and explorations, its underwater world of colourful corals and sea creatures, its crystal clear waters and reefs teeming with life, can all be seen in this stunningly illustrated and informative book.
