Subtropical Coast

Minimize

In Australia, the subtropical coast of the Coral Sea extends south of the Great Barrier Reef into northern New South Wales, and includes a wide range of habitats from estuaries and bays to headlands and open beaches. The fauna living in these habitats tend to be a mixture of tropical and temperate species. For example, many animals living in Moreton Bay are also present on the southern Great Barrier Reef.
