My first day on oz ex i met to Welshies who i've been travelling with for the last week. We went to Babinda boulders then to a croc Farm where i got to hold a baby cric and snake, feed some wallabies and kangaroos and watch the massive crocs being fet dead chickens.
Stayed in a place called Scottys which was amazing, had a real nice pool which we spent alot of time in. On saturday we went on a free rainforest walk where we saw a Cassowarie in the wild then went swimming in a rock pool thing. I did my skydive on Sunday which was unbelievable. Its the most undescrible feeling when you first tumble out of the plane. Definately one of the best things i've ever done. Can't wait to show you all the video! Spent all my time with Jodie, Gemma and Josie which has been a welcome change from traveling on my own.
IS AMAZING! Beautiful beaches (as if i havnt seen enough beach already). Me and the girls rented a 4x4 for the day and drove round the island. We stopped at a load of different spots all of which were so quiet! we had the beaches to ourself for most of the day. We did a load of boulder climbing which was a good laugh. We also went to this little waterfall with clean fresh water so we did alot of ropeswing jumping and swimming there. Then i got to drive the 4x4 off road on a dirt path to West Point. This is DEFINATELY one of the best things i have EVER done! I had so much fun driving through rivers and stuff. Cannot wait till i get to Fraser Island!! Am very glad i came away when i was 21! At west point we watched the sunset on a completely secluded beach. then Josie illegally drove the 4x4 back to our Hostle hahaaa. Josie left us on the 3rd day and me and the girls did a walk where i saw my first Koala in the wild!!
COUCHSURFING IS BRILLIANT! Me, Jodie and Gemma couched surfed with a 18year old guy called Lachlan for 2 nights. He lives with his sister and dad who were totally fine about having some randomers in their house for 2 days. We got to cook in the kitchen and sleep on the sofas for free! Lachlan cooked us a meal the second night then took us out in Townsville and paid for pretty much evrything all night. I'm in the process of setting up some couchsurfing places down the East Coast now so i can skip paying for accomodation. Not that much in Townsville itself but it was bloody hot the whole time, 35degrees!
Am now in Airlie beach swith no debit card still so exchanged my 20GBP and US dollars so i could pay my reef tax and buy water. Am setting of for my 2day 2 night party boat trip in an hour! Can't wait!
Will update when back
