In my first episode in Australia we will go on my first snorkeling trip too. We will take a bouncy boat ride to the Great Barrier Reef. I hope you don’t get seasick.
The boat takes a couple hours past the Whitsunday Islands from Airlie beach. You can’t stand out here so I wore a life jacket and saw an amazing world under the sea. I was looking for Ariel.
Along the way we will pass humpback whales! A mama and her calf and visit some of the other Whitsunday Islands.
I spent a month here visiting the famous Sydney Opera House, there are lot of steps, cruising down the great ocean road, seeing the Twelve Apostles (there really aren’t 12) but my absolute fav was the crazy wildlife. Kangaroos, koalas, wallabies. I know what is a wallaby?
Australia is all about adventure
You don’t need to go to the barrier reef to see the fish. We visited many islands of the Whitsundays where sea rays, turtles were right next to the beach. The water was so clear.
