Fish of the Great Barrier Reef by 

A typical scene along the Great Barrier Reef, here captured near the Whitsunday Islands.

Yellowtail Fusilier (Caesio cuning) swim beneath a large school of smaller fish.

The Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest reef system. A large part of the reef is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which helps to limit the impact of human use, such as fishing and tourism. The Reef is listed as a World Heritage Site.

Great Barrier Reef, QLD, Australia.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
