WHALE WATCHING IN HERVEY BAY | WALE WATCHING PARADISE

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.

LODGING REVIEW | BLUE HORIZON, AIRLIE BEACH

Located in the hub to the Whitsundays and near the Great Barrier Reef lies Airlie Beach. This town is perfect for a mini break from busy city life and it lies only a 3-hour flight from Sydney.  Located on the edge of the city center lies an apartment hotel, Blue Horizon. Located a 6-minute walk from the Cruise Whitsundays terminal at the Port of Airlie, these sophisticated apartments are also a 12-minute walk from Airlie Beach and 3.8 km from Conway National Park.  Underneath you will find my honest review of my apartment and its additional facilities.
