We spent the day at the Great Barrier Reef, the largest, most complex, and most diverse coral reef system in the world. A visit to this biodiverse treasure was the perfect way to wrap up our visit to Australia. Tomorrow we head to Sydney, where we’ll spend our final day in Australia before heading home the following day.

The shallow coral cause waves to break miles before reaching shore.
