The Great Barrier Reef in Northern Queensland is a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1981. Due to pollution and bleaching, the reef is in a bit of trouble. When I, therefore, had the chance of snorkeling at two different locations during a snorkel safari I jumped at the chance. If I had known that there would be a storm and that the weather was going to be choppy, I might have reconsidered…. But there was no way out.
So, in this post, I will take you along my very interesting ocean safari to two different reef sites (Mackay and Undine Reefs) at the Great Barrier reef and I will show you what wonderful world lies underneath the rough ocean.
Airlie beach is one of my favorite getaways within Australia! I love traveling to this quaint and quiet town to de-stress from city life about once a year. The last time I travelled there was for my birthday and I stayed for 6 days and loved every minute of it. I thought It would be fun to create an itinerary so that you know where to go, what to see and what’s worth your time!
So, I have written this 2-day Airlie Beach itinerary to give you some guidance! Because this town and its surroundings are worth checking out!
Do not swim in rivers or the ocean is something you hear often when mentioning that you are traveling to Queensland. This is because they are home to salties aka Salt Water Crocodiles. These enormous and fascinating monsters can be found in most rivers and oceans in Queensland.
It speaks for itself that I avoided these like the plague! I did not want to encounter one in the flesh….But I did want to spot some from the safety of a tour and ended up doing the Daintree River Cruise with the Daintree River Cruise Centre in the hopes of spotting a croc and see the rainforest from a different angle.
To find out if this is worth the troubles, I’ve written this extensive guide to give you some guidance.
This spring, I was lucky enough to visit Queensland, Australia again. I went on a 20-day road trip through some of the prettiest spots in the country. Queensland is filled with stunning national parks, reef filled oceans, rainforests and lots of spectacular wildlife.
One of the most spectacular places I visited during this trip was Cape Hillsborough National Park. The national park can be found near MacKay and offers some of the most spectacular sights! From Kangaroos on the beach during sunset to Prehistoric rock formations and the rainforest meets the ocean.
In this post, I will show you what you can see and do during your visit to this park. Let’s dive in and explore this incredible national park….
When you set your alarm at 5.15 am you know it’s going to be spectacular (Or a least, it better be). My alarm went off at this gauzily hour to watch a sunrise with Kangaroos and wallabies playing and chilling on the beach whilst the sun slowly rose behind them.
In this blog post, I will take you along this incredible sight at Cape Hillsborough National Park. I will show you many photos and I will give you my honest opinion about whether it is worth the early morning wake up call.
Let’s explore the kangaroos of Cape Hillsborough National Park!
The Capricorn Caves are a great destination to check out during a trip to Queensland. Located 23 kilometers north of Rockhampton, the caves are easily reachable and a lovely sight to see.
Home to ‘the cathedral’, bats, tree roots, larges and small chambers, these caves are pretty interesting
In this post, I will take you along to these caves and show you what it is like to take the Cathedral Tour.
Hervey Bay in Queensland is known as a whale-watching paradise. Due to its unique location, whales can be found here for months on end. They deliver their calves there and spend a couple of weeks in the waters before they swim further.
In September of this year, I was in Hervey Bay, and I could not leave this town without a whale-watching cruise. So at 6.30 am my alarm went off and we headed to the Spirit of Hervey Bay for a morning cruise.
Brisbane, located in Queensland, is a relatively unknown destination within Australia. When you are planning to travel Down Under, most people automatically think of Sydney and Melbourne as their main destinations. However, Brisbane has been paving their ways and attracting more and more visitors each year.
The city is the gateway to the Gold Coast, some stunning hinterlands and also the Great Barrier Reef! Surrounded by oceans and beaches, mountains, a thriving food scene, and cultural activities, there is always a variety of things to do, for everyone alike. And because they are blessed with an incredible subtropical climate, the city is a superb destination all year round.
The last couple of weekends I have spent wandering around some of Sydney’s eastern suburbs. One of my favorites is Watson’s Bay. Located at the end of South Head Peninsula, Watsons Bay is surrounded by the calm waters of Sydney Harbour on one side and the emerald Pacific Ocean on the other, offering stunning views throughout.
The suburb has a lot of history and is home to some of the best restaurants in the city.
In this mini-guide, I will show you all the cool spots, restaurants and walks you should when exploring this fancy suburb.
Sydney is by far the most amazing city I have ever lived in. Whenever I have time I love to go out and explore new things each time. Incredible coastal walks, hidden little beaches, UNESCO WORLD heritage sites and some of the most amazing sunsets you will ever encounter.
Six days in Sydney is definitely not enough to see everything this amazing metropolis has to offer – but it’s a great start. A lot of travelers start out in Sydney and then travel up the coast, so they have limited time to see everything.
I have therefore written this all-comprehensive 6-day Sydney travel itinerary (Including one day to the Blue Mountains and Jervis Bay National Park) to give you the best Sydney has got to offer. I will go over all of your best options for things to do, places to visit, and lots of helpful Sydney travel tips.
