It is a sleepy lethargic laid back town,
Amidst a land of sandy brown,
Holding a wonderful delicate crown,
Displayed in the bluish under water frown,
A voluminous natural great reef barrier grown,
Clusters of colourful corals diligentlyy thrown,
Lying in heaps and mounds not alone.
Fish and sea urchins live along,
Sea cucumber and star fish dive head long,
Jelly fish sting with a venom not too long,
All jointly devour the moss with a tong,
Causing a damage to the great reef all along,
Unperturbed the Ocean reef sprouts in a throng,
Not losing the lovely charm in a song.
It is Australia’s natural gift, all hail,
The only living thing seen from space in a trail,
Greater than the “Great Wall Of China” in the sail,
A “mecca” to holiday makers is a slogan frail,
Therein lies an abundance of beauty as though in a pail,
Hundreds of islands and coral reefs are hinged together in a nail,
It is Cairns high up in the northern Queensland posing an enticing unveil.
