Sorry it has been a while since I have been able to update this, haven't had much chance to get on a computer for long so will do a few now...
On Saturday (29th) I met the new lot of my group who all seem nice and up for some fun. We headed up Karunda which was where we could cuddle a koala! It was so cute and pretty much was falling asleep in our arms!! They also had one with a little baby clung to it which was adorable! At the park there was also a load of wallabies that we could feed, they were really used to paeople and ate the food right out of our hands. On the way back down to Cairns we went on the skyrail which was cool as we got to see over all of the rainforest and over the city to. Int he evening we went out to an aboriginal dance and dinner thing. They performed for us, showing us their traditional dances and then we had a nice buffet for dinner. After they came out again for some more dances, they asked for some volunteers to go up on stage and my lovelly new tour guide volunteered me!! next thing I knew I was up on stage and attempting (quite badly) to make fire!! Could have killed him for making me go up on stage but I got given a signed boomerang for going up!!
The next day we were going out to the Great Barrier Reef. I wanted to do the scuba diving but unfortunately Queensland have quite strict rules and because I was diabetic they wouldn't let me!! Was a bit gutted but could still go snorkelling. We made 2 stops and at the first one, Leigh (our driver) took me out and showed me all the stuff which was cool, even managed to find nemo!! It was so surreal out at the reef, a lot of it just didn't look real it was so brightly coloured!! Had an amazing day, everyone loved it and it was nice and sunny so in between snorkelling we could sit our sunbathing on the deck. :)
Unfortunately the next morning we had to say goodbye to Cairns and we headed out to Undara for a bit more of an outback experience. Wew ere told we were camping but when we got there they were like little teepee things with sinks and fridges in between each pair!! Not bad camping!! Our guide Adam took us for a bit of a look around and tried to show us how to throw boomerangs - wasn't too bad at it but not all that brilliant either. Late afternoon we went for a wildlife at sunset tour and saw some kangaroos - one had a little joey in her pouch, was so cute!!! We then headed up to a lookout point and had champagne and cheese and biscuits whils we watched it! Getting used to all this free champers1 :) On the way back we stopped at one of the lava tubes where loads of bats lived and we could see them all flying out, was pretty cool. tried to get some pics but was bit difficult. had a nice roast dinner that nice which was a nice home comfort after so long!! :)
