Great Barrier Reef: Dive sites and marine life that inspired the Sir David Attenborough documentary

4 27



In the 60 years since Sir David Attenborough first visited Queensland and Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the world’s greatest naturalist has discovered some standout locations including the Ribbon Reefs, Osprey Reef, Lady Elliot, Magnetic, Orpheus, Lizard and Heron islands.

“The Great Barrier Reef is surely the world’s most incredible environment. Each and every time I return it amazes me all over again,” said Sir David Attenborough.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef ecosystem made up of 2,900 coral reefs and 1,050 islands and cays. It is also the only living structure in the world that can be seen from space.
The Great Barrier Reef allows marine lovers to scuba, swim or dive, and to also spot the Great 8 marine creatures: whales, manta rays, clown fish, turtles, potato cod, giant clams, maori wrasse and, of course, sharks.
