Great Barrier Reef

Tan sediments spill out of Broad Sound, a large bay on the east coast of Queensland, Australia, towards the Great Barrier Reef.

The Torilla Peninsula forms the eastern side of the bay; Shoalwater Bay is on the other side of the peninsula. The Styx River flows into Broad Sound.

Such a large presence of sediments is not surprising, as Broad Sound is noted for its large tidal rangeĀ  of up to 9 metres.
