It also gives a preview of the uniquely Australian wildlife. More than 80% of the indigenous animal population is unique to Australia.

The Great Barrier Reef and Islands for Miles
The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest reef system with over 900 islands stretching for over 1,600 miles – roughly half the size of Texas! This reef, the largest living entity on Earth, is located off the coast of Queensland, and is home to countless species of colorful fish, birds, and sea turtles. Snorkeling is one of the best ways to view the incredible underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef.
