HALF A DAY SNORKELING AT THE GREAT BARRIER REEF | OCEAN SAFARI

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.

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.

THE ULTIMATE ULURU TOUR | SLEEPING UNDER THE STARS

Probably one of the coolest holidays I have been on what was a 3-day 2-night trip to Kata Tjuta, Kings Canyon and Australia’s most recognizable natural landmarks – Uluru.  I slept underneath a starry night’s sky in a swag, I walked the base route of Ayers Rock and hiked to the Garden of Eden. It was just one thing after another with its unique and breathtakingly beautiful scenery and that all whilst learning about the Aboriginal culture. If you are thinking of taking an organized trip but don’t want to spend a fortune, then check out this blog post. I will take you along with my trip and show you what it was like, whether I recommend going on this tour or even at all. (Spoiler alert: This trip is bloody brilliant)
