17 December 2010 - AU - 109939 - Brisbane

On 17 december I found a card from Australia in my mailbox. It is my second official from this country! So special for me. It has traveled a distance of 16,229 kms in 29 days. A very long trip!

It shows us the Great Barrier Reef, which is also a UNESCO site.

The Great Barrier Reef is a site of remarkable variety and beauty on the north-east coast of Australia. It contains the world’s largest collection of coral reefs, with 400 types of coral, 1,500 species of fish and 4,000 types of mollusc. It also holds great scientific interest as the habitat of species such as the dugong (‘sea cow’) and the large green turtle, which are threatened with extinction.
