Megan McCormick travels to Queensland, Australia's second largest state whose 3000 mile coastline borders the Great Barrier Reef, the world's largest living organism. She begins her journey at Surfers' Paradise on the Gold Coast. Surfers were originally attracted by the beautiful deserted beaches and gigantic waves, but unfortunately they were followed by the big developers eager to exploit 70 kilometres of idyllic coastline. From here, Megan heads north by bus to Noosa another surfers' Mecca but one which has avoided the scourge of the developers. She then continues her journey along the Bruce Highway to Harvey Bay, from where she catches the ferry to Fraser Island, the world's largest sandbar. It's a 10 hour drive from Fraser Island to Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday Islands, known as åÕåÔåÕ̪the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef'. Megan spends 2 days on board the Matador, an 80 ft long yacht which holds up to 20 passengers and 4 crew. She then goes diving in Blue Pearl Bay on Hayman Island, where the coral is beautiful and varied. It isn't deeper than 30ft and there are hundreds of very friendly Sergeant Major Fish. One of the hidden dangers of north Queensland are the crocodiles which lurk in rivers and creeks. Megan meets the Barefooted Bushman, a local man who has lived with the crocodiles for 26 years, and he teaches her how to ensure you don't lose a limb if you should encounter one. From Cairns Megan flies to the northern most tip of Australia to Thursday Island, the capital of the Torres Strait islands. For nearly a hundred years Thursday Island was the centre of the Japanese pearl trade, and a great many divers lost their lives seeking pearls here. Megan meets the last surviving diver, and learns a little about how oysters produce these precious gems.
