Minimize Great Barrier Reef, Australia

The Great Barrier Reef in Australia is one of the most famous tourist destinations due to its distinct coral colour.

It is the world's largest coral reef and embodies an abundance of marine life, coral cays, breathtaking topical islands and sunny beaches. The main features of this attraction include snorkelling, scuba diving, aircraft or helicopter tours, bare boats (self-sail), glass-bottomed boat viewing, semi-submersibles and educational trips, cruise ship tours, whale watching and swimming with dolphins.

Moreover, the Great Barrier Reef is considered to be one of the seven wonders of the natural world because it is larger than the Great Wall of China and even visible from space.
