If you have been loving Gray's latest beach aerials from Australia, specifically Sydney and surf lover's favorite, Byron Bay, then you are in for a real treat today! World reknowned as the largest living thing on Earth(yes, you read correctly!), Gray has releasedhis stunning newaerials of the Great Barrier Reef as well as the 74 cluster of islands known as the Whitsunday Islands, which lie between the northeast coast of Queensland, Australia, and the Great Barrier Reef.

With a total of 17 new images debuting today, please join us as we highlight just a handful....


Courtesy of trusty *Wikipedia, lets breakdown some of the fascinating facts about the Great Barrier Reef. It is composed of 2,900 individual reefand 900 islands stretching for over 1,400milesover an area of approximately 133,000 miles. Soaring high above in Gray's signature doorless helicopter, he reached great heights to capture this entrancing new images.

Unsurprisingly, the primary tourist attraction to the area is snorkeling and scuba diving. The access to the reef is primarily based in the Queensland city of Cairns as well as The Whitsundays.


The Whitsundays are a group of islands invarious sizes off the central coast of Queensland. Whitsunday Island is the largest of the group and is home to Whitehaven Beach, which very interestingly has sand thatdoesn't retain heat and has a fine, powder-like consistency.* Isn't that so cool?? No burning of the feet on hot sand while strolling atop the sands of Whitehaven Beach.

Aren't they dreamy? We're simply in love with Gray's latest additions to Á la Plage. To see them all, click here, and then tell us which ones are your favorite!
