Great Barrier Reef

Photographic exhibition on now

The Great Barrier Reef is the world's most extensive coral reef system. It extends for 2300 km along the Queensland coast and is more than 300,000 in area. The Reef consists of 3500 individual reefs, 600 rocky islands and 300 coral and sand cays. 

All photography featured in the exhibition has been captured by Gary Cranitch. Gary has worked as a wildlife photographer at the QLD Museum for 36 years. His work has been published in Australian Geographic, Popular Science, New Scientist, National Geographic online and numerous other publications and journals around the world. He has also contributed to the QLD Museum’s extensive range of natural history publications. 

The Great Barrier Reef: A Queensland Museum Discovery Guide allows readers to undertake their own voyages of discovery into this complex and fascinating world, through time and both above and below water. This book is available for purchase in the Museum Shop.
