I’d love to get to the Great Barrier Reef, but probably won’t anytime soon. If you’re like me, or just want to go back, check out the live Twitter Periscope broadcast that will take you on a guided tour of the reef tonight.
The broadcast live will happen Wednesday, July 12 here in the US at 7:30 pm PDT/10:30 EDT but will be 12:30 p.m. AEST on Thursday. To make it more interactive, travel personality Mitch Oates will be answering questions live from underwater. Oates will be fitted with a specialist scuba mask, which allows him to answer in real-time.

“The Great Barrier Reef is a living treasure which is ours to protect and share with visitors from around the world,” said Tourism and Events Queensland CEO, Leanne Coddington, said in a statement. “The Great Barrier Reef Periscope Adventure will showcase the underwater wonder and allow people to engage with the Reef in an entirely new way thanks to technology.”
