In the coral jungle

The coral sea, washing the northeast coast of Australia, got its name because of the abundance of coral reefs and islands. The Great Barrier Reef, stretching along the northeast coast of Australia for 2,000 kilometers, is the most unique coral formation in the world.

The reef is separated from the mainland by a lagoon, the depth of which reaches 50 meters. The Great Barrier Reef is crossed by natural canals and ducts.

To the Gold Coast

On the eve of departure from Sydney, we finally went to Taronga Zoo, the zoo there (an additional entertainment is to go there through the bay to the “ferry”: you sit in the stern, look at the receding center of Sydney until the illegible giants of the skyscrapers turn into a glossy view card with a tower Sydney Bridge and Opera House). “And koalas can’t have a day off?

And now – you won’t believe it, my heart was beating like before an exam! – pen with the Continue reading

Discovery of Australia

On April 29, 1770, the heavy and clumsy ship Endeavor anchored in the waters of a charming bay. Among the team of captain James Cook, who went in search of an unknown southern continent, in other words, Australia, there was also a scientist – amateur botanist of the Royal Geographical Society Joseph Banks. He was so struck by the picture of dozens of plants that were unknown to the science of that time that he had discovered that he persuaded Cook to rename the seemingly named bay. Since then, it has been called the Botanical, that is, Botany Bay.

It must be said that the expedition with so many scientists on board went to the expanses of the Pacific Ocean for the first time. In addition to Banks, on board the Endeavor were the Swedish naturalists Solander Continue reading
