NORTHERN GBR CORAL SCENES


Click to enlarge.  This was near Lizard Island in 1967

The reefs off Townsville (Northern Great Barrier Reef)  had spectacular formations until a very strong cyclone went through and smashed formations in deep water.  These large corals are hundreds of years old and can be likened to giant forest tree’s.  The above picture was November 1983 near Cape Bowling Green.
