The Great Barrier Reef, the largest living thing on earth and one of the "Seven Natural Wonders of the World", is also one of the largest tourism draws to Queensland and Australia as a whole. Stretching over 133 thousand square miles (and visible from outer space), the reef is made up of over 400 types of coral and is home to roughly 6,600 types of marine life. Given the vast area the reef covers, there is an abundance of activities to enjoy in the area. Take a helicopter tour to view the reef from above, go river rafting nearby, or go on a sailing tour to see the reef from closer up. Of course, scuba diving is also a popular thing to do.
