We left Cracow on 2nd December to head further up the East Coast. Our first stop was Bundaberg but we didn't stay here long as it was very quiet and full of Abos. Two days later we headed for Airlie Beach to experience the Whitsunday Islands. We checked into Magnums backpackers in Airlie which was really nice and here we booked our trip to the Whitsundays for the following day. The Whitsunday Islands were fantastic (Whitehaven Beach, Daydream Island, Hamilton Island etc etc), there are some pictures in my album for you to have a look at.
The Whitsundays trip was 3 days and 2 nights sailing where we had to camp on one of the Islands each night which was wicked. While we were there we saw Whitehaven Beach, Daydream Island, Hamilton Island etc etc which were totally amazing. I also did a Scuba Dive which was out of this world - I have been told that the best place to Scuba Dive is on the Great Barrier Reef and after doing it myself, I would agree 100%. The only bad part of the Scuba Dive was that I forgot to buy an underwater camera, typical hey??
We turned it into a proper camping trip with the camp fire, lots of alcohol, smoke and a guitar to play a few tunes. We met some great Irish guys who totally made the trip and we also met an English couple from Bristol called Paul and Mar who were really lovely. Whilst camping, there were two Italian guys who were smoking weed out of a potato as they had no papers, how weird is that?? Has anybody actually heard or saw that before??
We ended up coming back to Airlie after the Whitsunday trip and stayed another two nights as we were really shattered after our camping trip. Paul and Mar decided to stay another night with us too so we invited all the boat staff and any of the backpackers who were staying back to ours for a little party which was nice as most of them were heading off the next day.
