We remain committed to maintaining world-class standards of maintenance and safety, and are unable to carry out these unavoidable works without ceasing operations.

Queensland: Korallenriffe erholen sich

Am größten Korallenriff der Welt, dem Great Barrier Reef vor der Küste Queenslands im Nordosten Australiens, gibt es deutliche Anzeichen für eine Erholung von der so genannten Massenbleiche. Grund dafür ist ein relativ kühler Sommer im nördlichen Great Barrier Reef, das besonders betroffen war. Viele in Mitleidenschaft gezogene Korallenriffe haben sich erholen können oder wüchsen sogar wieder, heißt es vom Fremdenverkehrsamt Tourism Queensland.

Aktuelle Fotos der Reef Restoration Foundation zeigten gesunde, farbenfrohe und leuchtende Korallen rund um Fitzroy Island, am Moore Reef und am Saxon Reef bei Cairns – jenen Stellen, die während der Korallenbleiche 2016 und 2017 besonders gelitten hatten. Auch Tourenanbieter und Reiseveranstalter berichteten von einer Verbesserung des Zustands der Korallen an beliebten Tauchplätzen.

Zu einer Korallenbleiche kann es kommen, wenn Korallen zu viel Stress ausgesetzt sind, etwa durch hohe Wassertemperaturen oder schlechte Wasserqualität. Deutschsprachige Informationen zu Queensland finden sich unter www.queensland.com.

Diamond View Temporary Stop Sell

 

In order to minimise queue wait times at Barron Falls Rainforest Station during the redevelopment works, maximum cableway seating capacity will be required – particularly during the peak holiday July/August period.
 
To achieve maximum capacity it will be necessary to temporarily ‘stop sell’ Diamond View cabins during this period. Therefore, advance bookings for Diamond View will not be possible from 18 June 2018 until 24 July 2018. We will honour any Diamond View bookings you are already holding up to and including Sunday 24 June, but from Tuesday 26 June no Diamond View bookings can be accepted.
 
Due to the significant variations in daily passenger numbers that we can experience, we will monitor our loadings closely and may facilitate on-request upgrades to Diamond View on the day of travel (subject to availability).
 
Please Note: the dates outlined above are subject to change. We will ensure any changes to these dates are communicated to you in a timely manner.
 
We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. 
 
We look forward to the completion of our redevelopment at Barron Falls Rainforest Station that will provide your guests with a greatly enhanced rainforest experience.
