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 snorkelling 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 ocean was going to be choppy, I might have reconsidered…. But there was no way out.
In this post, I will take you along on a trip with Ocean Safari. I will show you the two snorkelling sites, what it is like to take this trip, what you can expect and what happens when massive waves interfere with your trip.
Airlie beach is one of my favourite getaways within Australia! I love travelling 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 natural sights! From kangaroos and wallabies on the beach during sunrise to imposing prehistoric rock formations and stunning untouched rainforests.
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. In this cave system, you can explore spectacular caves set in a limestone ridge and even spot little bats. These amazing caves are located north of Rockhampton (Just a 23-kilometer drive) and are winners of many major tourism and environment awards, they are also eco-tourism accredited.
Home to ‘the cathedral’, bats, tree roots, larges and small chambers, these caves are pretty interesting to explore! In this blog post, I will take you along to these caves and show you what it is like to take the Cathedral Tour within the cave system. What will you encounter, is it worth your time and effort and more. Let’s dive in, shall we…
