The Coral Sea bioregion, located in the Australasia realm, extends from the Great Barrier Reef to the New Caledonia Islands, encompassing most of the Coral Sea and sharing much of the reef’s rich biodiversity. The New Caledonia islands are mostly covered in tropical rainforest, with dry forests along the main island’s west coast. The bioregion has two ecoregions – New Caledonia Dry Forests , New Caledonia Rain Forests  – with a total land area of nearly 2 million hectares.
