|Pixie Gardens is located at the south end of Ribbon Reef #10. It is a sheltered site affected
mainly by storms, fishing and the tourist industry. Pixie Gardens is not within a protection
zone although many protected species frequent the area.
Pixie Gardens is characterised by large sandy areas and patches of corals. A steep wall is
observed throughout the site as the transition to the reef flat. Reef Check surveys are not
normally done on walls but an exception was made in order to continue the long term
monitoring of this site.
