Taken from his journal as part of the blog task:
Coral absolutely everywhere and in all shapes, sizes and colours with a multitude of fish swimming around them – almost too many to count and understandably so, with 1500 species of fish calling the Great Barrier Reef their home.
I’ve dived in some amazing other locations in the world before but the sheer concentration of corals here really blew every other experience out of the water (no pun intended). Stag coral, Finger coral, Brain coral all vying for position, gripping at every available place along the reef looking akin to an underwater forest.
I’ve seen the rainforests of central Africa and now I was witnessing the underwater equivalent in Queensland!
Some of the highlights of the top 16 finalists vying for the best job in the world offered by the Queensland Tourism, Australia. Congratulations to the finalists!
