Australian Exortic Places(1)

Great Barrier Reef:
Checking out the Great Barrier Reef is one of the must-do activities in Australia. The variety of bio-diversity that this reef supports is seen to be believed. The Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphin, dwarf minke whale, flatback turtle, olive ridley turtle and salt water crocodiles are some of the species found here. There is a wide variety of birds in this reef. It’s one of the heritage sites in this continent country. Located off the Queensland coast, the Great Barrier Reef is in the Coral Sea and is the largest coral reef in the world. ‘Live aboard’ is a floating guest facility that is offered by many places along the coast. A scuba diver would find this reef really fascinating. You could also try snorkeling and diving.
Sydney Harbor: is a natural harbor and it provides the backdrop for the breathtaking Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbor Bridge. At the Opera House, you’ve performances by local music groups as well as foreign productions. The architecture is really modern with its typical ‘shells’ forming the roof. ‘The Coathanger’ or the Harbor Bridge is another image that represents Australia to most of the world. The pyrotechnics on New Year’s Eve is splendid. If you are willing to take the risk, you could climb the bridge. Of course, there are enough safety precautions in place!
