A new documentary series on the Great Barrier Reef, presented by world-renowned naturalist and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, is currently in the making, hoping to bring the wonders that lie under its waters to a worldwide audience of millions.
A joint production by Tourism Australia and UK production company Atlantic Productions, the 3-part documentary is set to air early next year in over 130 countries around the world.
Known for its extraordinary coral reefs and vast arrays of marine wildlife, the Great Barrier Reef is one of the UK’s favourite Australian attractions according to polls and surveys.
David Attenborough has recently wrapped up the filming process, which took 3 weeks, during which he spent time on one of the reef’s most advanced research vessels. As well as giving viewers a close-up of the beautiful natural sights one can experience in the Reef, one episode will be dedicated to the future of the Reef, and how science can play an important role in helping to protect it.
If a TV documentary isn’t enough, and you want to experience the Great Barrier Reef for real, join Distant Journeys on our Great Barrier Reef day tours, which come included in both our Wonders of Australia and Visions of Australia tour package holidays.
The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.
Mr & Mrs Hall, Magnificent New Zealand
We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
