One of the most interesting features of Australia is the Great Barrier Reef. It is considered as the world’s largest coral reef system located in Queensland, Australia. It is composed of more than 2,900 individual reefs and 900 different islands which stretch more than 2,300 kilometers – this is almost the same distance if you’re going to Boston from Miami. It covers an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometers and reaches the Torres Strait and Fraser Island.

According to sources, the Great Barrier Reef formed about 26,500 years ago during the Last Glacial Maximum. According to these sources, the land which forms the base of the Great Barrier Reef is the remnants of the sediments of Australia’s largest mountain range or the Great Dividing Range.
