The Port Douglas must do: 4 mile beach
If you’ve ever seen it, the magnificence of 4 Mile Beach speaks for itself. A blue-green ocean reaching to the horizon. Clean, flat sand stretching as far as the eye can see. Gentle but crisp waves tapping rhythmically as they roll in and break on the beach. A hot sun making sand and sea shine. Palms trees leaning lazily towards the ocean and creating a cooling shade…..Yes, if you’ve seen it, the famous Port Douglas beach has its own voice. But if you haven’t seen it, here’s your chance. Watch as this camera pans up and down the beach, looks through the palms and out over the ocean. Watch this camera capture the idyllic nature of this spectacular coast in FNQ.
Great Barrier Reef In Crisis
“It’s Just Terrible. Horrific.” Australia’s iconic reef has been hit by its worst ever bleaching event this year.
Devastating images showing the destruction have been obtained and illustrate what is happening to coral there that would fill an area the size of Scotland.
Six of the world’s seven species of marine turtle live in the waters around Australia, and all occur within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Some species such as the loggerhead and green turtle are seen frequently, while others such as the olive ridley and leatherback are known to occur in the Great Barrier Reef but are seldom seen.
