The Great Barrier Reef: A Natural Wonder

For many of us, we may have on our bucket list to visit the Great Barrier Reef. One of our valued vendors, Eagle Creek is giving away a trip for two to the Great Barrier Reef. You can enter to win the trip online or at one of our stores. You have until July 15th to enter to win.

What makes the Great Barrier Reef special? For one it is larger than the Great Wall of China and is the only living thing on earth visible from space. It has the world’s largest coral reef system with over 2900 individual reefs and 900 islands.  A closer encounter with the Great Barrier Reef’s impressive coral gardens reveals many astounding underwater attractions including the world’s largest collection of corals (in fact, more than 400 different kinds of coral), coral sponges, molluscs, rays, dolphins, over 1500 species of tropical fish, more than 200 types of birds, around 20 types of reptiles including sea turtles and giant clams over 120 years old.

Some would say, and I would agree with them, that it is unlike anything else of its kind. A trip that cannot be substituted by snorkeling around your favorite vacation spot, despite how beautiful that may be. The Great Barrier Reef offers a diverse range of options to explore its seemingly endless area. You can go on day tours, overnight and extended tours. Snorkeling and scuba diving are both offered along with fishing charters, long range roving tours, aircraft or helicopter tours, glass bottom boats and opportunities to go whale or dolphin watching along the reef. Really… the choices are endless. And let’s not forget where the Great Barrier Reef is located. Right off the coast of beautiful Australia.

So what are you waiting for? Get in to a Colorado Bag N Baggage Store today to enter. Or sign up online. But get your name in, because the lucky winner and the even luckier person who gets to ride along with them will have an unforgettable experience.
