A German media group (6 journos) exploring the Gold Coast and Southern GBR region at the moment. We have perfect weather and we have seen just great nature conditions – esp. on Lady Elliot Island (where we have been today). The water was absolutely clear and the beaches sooooo clean. On the flight from OOL to LEI we have seen the coastline (GC, SC, Moreton Island, Fraser Island, etc) – we all expected much worst conditions and pollution. NO: The water and the beaches looked pretty good (for a first time visitor it looked normal)!
Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay located at the southern tip of Australia's World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef. Situated within a highly protected ’Green Zone’ the island is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life and is known for its abundance of manta rays, turtles, amazing array of spectacular marine life and unspoilt coral reef.
