A to Z Challenge: G

Posted by AJ Blythe at Saturday, April 07, 2012

G is for Great Barrier Reef and G'day
G'day (good day) is the quintessential Aussie greeting. Although promoted around the world as being used in the form "g'day mate" most Aussies don't actually put the two words together, although both words are used often.




The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world's 7 natural wonders. Found off the east coast of Australia it runs along the coast of Queensland (300km/1800miles) and is the only living thing visible from space. The impressive coral reefs are a must-see destination with diving and snorkelling letting visitors get up close and personal with the amazing coral and sea life.

Oh, so sorry it didn't display for you, Sherry. Google images will show you how gorgeous the Great Barrier Reef is.

I remember it well. I dived with friends off Lizard in the 1990s. I've left Australia now and live in England. Grey skies and muted landscapes of green hills replace the bright beauty of Queensland.

I've never been to the UK, but I think I'd miss sunny Qld, Francene - although the constant lush green of those hills would be a nice change!
