Great Barrier Reef is awe-inspiring

Article content

6 November 2009

Mass coral spawning displays on the Great Barrier Reef are must-see events for travellers, it has been suggested.

Col McKenzie, executive director of the Association of Marine Park Tourism Operators, told the Cairns Post that the next one - which takes place this weekend - should be "spectacular", with huge amounts going on at the same time.

"I've been out there when it's been spawning and it's just been absolutely awe-inspiring," he remarked. "You just can't believe there is that much activity in the water."

Reefs generally spawn during the last three months of the year, with fertilisation taking place around the first full moon in October on the inner ones and November and December on the outer ones.

The events might give an added incentive to holidaymakers to check out one of the planet's most admired landmarks, with the Great Barrier Reef recently named one of 28 official finalists for the New7Wonders of Nature campaign.
