One of the great, spectacular wonders in Australia is the Great Barrier Reef. It is a remarkable, largest coral reef in the world! The vastness of this spectacular natural resources is extending as it is the only living thing visible from space! (See http://www.greatbarrierreef.org/)
It was considered as one of the most finest alpine drives that lies at the most northern and accessible end of Fiordland National Park.
Milford Sound formed when the sea entered a deeply excavated glacial trough after the melting-away of the ice. The thickness of the ice that excavated the basin can be seen in the height of the vertical cliffs that rise from below sea level, truncating the U-shaped profiles of older glacial valleys.

Along with the other three natural wonders, I voted the above extra-spectacular nature’s beauties to become one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. I may not voted the Palawan Underground River yet this doesn’t cost my allegiance to my nationality be questioned. It is just reasonable and responsible to support natural wonders that of extra-spectacular characteristics in terms of scientific and geographical formations.
Let us vote the future new seven wonders of nature indiscriminately – without nationality being involved!
