Hi ,
I'm a new "melbournite" (1 year and counting ) and i was thinking of doing some travelling during the christmas and new year break. Since I am a student here , i have a week off during that time and i was thinking of going to see the great barrier reef as i read about that when i was in high school. I didnt know the reef covers such a wide area. I was wondering any one could give me suggestions as to which places i should go and also which ones would be cheaper to go to as i am still on a student budget (Sucks that the only break i have is when the ticket prices are sky high ).
Thanks in advance for you advice/suggestion if any.
Kay.

I agree with that fear, Caltuna....but its still worth trying. I will keep trying until theres nothing left to save. We cant afford to lose the Great Barrier Reef

Hi Harold . . .
The GBReef must be saved.
I don't like the prospect of either drilling on or near it.
Or even the prospect of a deep water harbour nearby.
An oil spill nearby would devastate the reel beyond repair. (At least in our lifetime).

If you're a student you could just grab a snorkel and head down to the bay. Specifically around MT Martha is pretty good for snorkelling. It's no great barrier reef but still pretty good and a great part of Vic.
