Great Barrier Reef

Yeppoon, Queensland
S 23’10.740, E 150’47.622

A sinking coast, a chain of eruptions, and many millions of years created the Tropic of Capricorn’s stunning seascape. Volcanic plugs, a gorgeous headline, and the world famous Great Barrier Reef remain a testament to this ancient world.

You may be surprised to know the Great Barrier Reef, which thrives beyond the Keppel Group of Islands, is part of a coastal plain formed from the erosion of the Great Dividing Range!
