Great Barrier Reef ☆

by Yuka Nakamura
(Tokyo, Japan)

Talking about Australia, I think of the Great Barrier Reef first of all. The Great Barrier Reef is on the northeast coast of the Australian continent and the biggest coral reef all over the world. It was registered as a World Natural Heritage Site in 1981. Its length is over 1600 miles, with more than 2900 reefs, and it has about 900 islands.

The most impressive thing about the Great Barrier Reef is that people can see it from space. This means that the Great Barrier Reef is very vast and I was surprised about this. The Great Barrier Reef is a single structure made by living creatures.

I learned about the Great Barrier Reef in high school, and when I saw a picture of it for the first time, I was lost for words. Someday, I want to visit there.
