AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Over two centuries the sublime power of the Great Barrier Reef is gradually diminished in discourse, as naturalists become scientists and ecologists, as maritime navigation becomes less dangerous, as explorers became industrialists and tourists, and as poets, novelists philosophers and other imaginative thinkers and writers begin to turn their attention to exploring the beauty of the reef.'
