David Attenborough returns to film the Great Barrier Reef

David Attenborough returns to the Great Barrier Reef nearly 60 years after his first visit, as part of a new multi-platform media project between Atlantic Productions and Tourism Australia aimed at inspiring greater interest and more visits to the world’s largest coral reef system.

David Attenborough returns to the Great Barrier Reef nearly 60 years after his first visit, as part of a new multi-platform media project between Atlantic Productions and Tourism Australia aimed at inspiring greater interest and more visits to the world’s largest coral reef system.

Tourism Australia announced the new collaboration (Tuesday 17 March) at its inaugural Destination Australia Conference in Sydney.

Expected to air early in 2016 and anticipated to be distributed across more than 130 countries, the three-part documentary series will form a key part of a renewed push by Tourism Australia to promote Australia’s aquatic and coastal experiences.

Tourism Australia Managing Director, John O’Sullivan, said it was great to see David Attenborough filming on the Great Barrier Reef again.

“It’s wonderful to welcome David back to the Reef where he will, once again, bring to life the many amazing stories of this magnificent natural wonder in his own unique and inimitable way.

“David Attenborough is one of the world’s greatest presenters of natural history content, and the Great Barrier Reef is arguably the world’s most recognised natural wonder. We couldn’t ask for a better match,” Mr O’Sullivan said.

David spent three weeks on the Reef as part of the filming schedule, including time aboard one of the world's most advanced research vessels equipped with the latest cutting-edge technology.
