In July 1928, a group of British and Australian scientists embarked on an expedition to investigate a section of the largest coral reef in the world – the Great Barrier Reef – off the coast of Queensland. Jointly funded by Australian and British interests, the expedition spent a year at Low Isles, near Port Douglas, investigating the biological and geological complexities of the reef.

Inspired by James Cook University Library’s Sir Charles Maurice Yonge Collection, this is the story of a ground-breaking scientific mission to Low Isles, Queensland in 1928-29, and an overview of its legacies.
