The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s last great wilderness areas. Its unique environment supports an astonishing and almost unequalled biodiversity, from microscopic plankton to whales.
The human history of the Reef is no less intriguing. Indigenous Australians have known the Reef for millennia and their Dreaming stories offer tantalising glimpses of a truly ancient world. Europeans first encountered the Reef some 500 years ago, but have only recently begun to understand its almost unimaginable complexity.

This book weaves these equally vibrant strands of natural and cultural heritage into a single narrative that leads the reader on their own voyage of discovery through one of the most beautiful places on Earth.
