With a desire to learn more about the Southern Great Barrier Reef and the work of local researchers, Master Reef Guides and scientists along the way, Lars Abromeit from Germany spent time discovering parts of the Barrier Reef that make it Great.
Supported by Tourism and Events Queensland, and guided by SGBR representatives at Capricorn Enterprise, Bundaberg Tourism and GAPDL, Lars spent time in Brisbane before heading to Bundaberg, Lady Elliot Island and Great Keppel Island, with his Queensland adventure coming to an end further north in Townsville and Port Douglas.
During his time in region, Lars researched material for leading science magazine GEO and also key news magazine STERN on new scientific approaches and breakthroughs maintaining the health of the Great Barrier Reef, along with Citizen Science Projects involving tourists and families travelling to Queensland, along with Australian fauna.
Lars, joined by his wife and two children, headed to Great Keppel Island with Keppel Konnections, and enjoyed a snorkel tour with Keppel Dive and Snorkel, marvelling at the Keppel Bay section of the Southern Great Barrier Reef alongside Master Reef Guides, Lyndsay and Sam Appleton.
Capricorn Enterprise was proud to support Lars and his family on their Australian visit, showing off our marvellous destination and some of the most colourful and healthiest parts of the reef.
