Hey so I shall finish off the blog from yesterday. I m still in Brisbane I leave in a couple of hours. I will be sad to leave Australia I have really enjoyed it here. So after Airlie beach we made our way to Townsville where we crossed over to magnetic Island and our hostel was on the beach front and the weather was so nice. When we arrived we got straight on the beach. Next day more beach time and then we went on forts walk where we saw a koala in the wild which was pretty cool. Then the last day we went snorkling and went to a koal sanctuary where i goot to hold a koala :) they are so awesome and smell nice because of the eucalyptus. Got to hold lots of other animals aswell like a baby croc, snake and a echinder.
Next day it was time to move on so we headed up to Cairns where our time was jam pck full. Went out the evening we arrived which was a good night as we were back with some friends w met on the Fraser trip. First day was Uncle Brian tour which is just this day of fun and singing with a bus called Gus. We went to lots of swimming holes tht were awesome. One had a natural waterslide so we had great fun on that. Then we got to go to the waterfallthat is in the herbal essence adverts and where Mysterious girl video was filmed. fter that we went platypus spotting and it was amazing we found one in the first 10 minutes and got to see it so much it kept popping back up. We were really lucky as apparentl only 7% of Australia population has seen it, it is such a weird but fascinating creature, I love them.On the way back we just sang songs and generally had a good time it was such a different tour.
Next day we were on the great barrier reef which was just wow. We did a bit or snorkling and got to swim with a turtle which was awesome we were so close to it and followed it for about 15minutes. Then we did 2 dives which were amazing we got to get so close to the fish I got some awesome pictures. W saw more turtles, sharkles, blue spotted sting ray and then hundreds and hundreds of teh most colourful and beautiful fish. I got to see some clwn fish just like Nemo yay. The coral was cool aswell and we saw a massive clam, the whole thing was just incrdable. Went out that night to say goodbye to the girls we had met who were leaving.
Our last tour was to Cape Tribulation where we saw the worlds oldest rainforest and where rainforest meets the sea. I cant believe how much we fitted in we were so tired after al these early starts but I think we made the most of our time there. I also brought a didderidoo which issoo cool now I just need to get it home safely.
We have flown to Brisbane and there is not that much to do here so just had a look around town and soaked up the atmosphere and njow I am about to get on a flight to Singapore in about 4 hours, I am very excited. Cant believe I only have a few days left bu I gt to see you all very soon so till then bye x xx
