The Great Barrier Reefs On the continental shelf of Queensland a diverse collection of coral reefs stretches from Lady Elliott Island, at lat. 24°5'S, northwards for nearly 2000 km to Torres Strait. This vast assemblage, the largest in the world, consists of barrier reefs, platform reefs, lagoonal platform reefs, and fringing reefs, which may border both continental islands and the mainland coast. " Fairbridge (1950) has given an account of the distribution of the various types of reef, and Maxwell (1968) has discussed their formation.
