The Great Barrier Reef - AUSTRALIA - UNESCO #154
After a rainy and cold day, this amazing multiview card really made me drift and dream of beeing by the seaside, feeling the warm sun and listening to the waves... it's so sad that we cannot make like in those Sci-Fi movies and immediately teletransport ourselves to a place by only looking to a picture of that place - I would go to Australia right now, I can tell you. Thank you very much Christy (best of luck for your studies at Sidney), this amazing card is the 255th UNESCO site I have, only 726 to the end if my collection. This postcard took 23 days to arrive!
The Great Barrier Reef is a site of remarkable variety and beauty on the north-east coast of Australia. It contains the world’s largest collection of coral reefs, with 400 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish and 4,000 types of mollusc. It also holds great scientific interest as the habitat of species such as the dugong (‘sea cow’) and the large green turtle, which are threatened with extinction.
