Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
Pure guesswork on my part .... Lizard Island , Great Barrier Reef.
was when James Cook and his team sailed the whole length of the reef from May to Aug 1770. When the ship struck Endeavour Reef, north of Cape Tribulation, and they were forced to repair their ship for six weeks that they were able to observe the Great Barrier Reef. But Cook and his team were not able to explore the reef and scientists were only able to know that the reef was of great length and size. After repairing the ship, Cook tried to make way to the open sea through the Lizard Island. When he and his botanist Joseph Banks climbed the highest point of island, they were able to see the passage in the reef, through which there ship made way. This is known as the ‘Cook’s passage’.
More than a guess now ....
