Two and a half weeks with your two best friends from home to explore the East Coast. It has been a whirlwind of late nights, long bus rides, hangovers, sea sickness, snorkelling, whale watching, four wheel driving, camping, dancing, laughing, sun burn, bridge climbs, beach days, koala cuddles, new friends, old friends and many more experiences.
Our route started flying from Sydney to Cairns; Port Douglas, Cairns, Missions Beach, Magnetic Island, Airlie Beach, Whit Sunday’s (Wings 2 boat), Rainbow Beach, Fraser Island ( Dingos Tour) and finally finishing in Brisbane.
We organised the trip with Peter Pans Travel Agencey. It was extremely easy they booked all our big trips for Whitsundays and Fraser, all our accomidation which we were very happy with. It was the best way for us to book our trip as we wanted to do everything but didn’t have much time and with the help of Peter Pan we got it all in. I just decided to list a few things people shouldn’t miss out on.
My must sees;
Cairns: If you have not dived before take advantage of the intro dives on the Great Barrier Reef boats it was the highlight of my trip in Cairns.
Mission Beach: If you want to relax and kick back stay at Jackaroo hostel. The hostel has a beautiful view and you feel like you are staying in a giant tree house.
Magnetic Island: Rent a car to explore the island the buses are very slow and far and few in between. We rented a Topless car which made zooming around the island fun.
Whitsundays: Wings 2 looked after us and made sure we had a fantastic two days on the water. I have also done power play which was also a amazing boat.
Fraser Island: The Dingo tour was amazing. It was my favourite part of the trip. The tour guide was brilliant and the driving and camping was a lot of fun. The sky at night was the most amazing sky I have ever witnessed, well worth the walk to the beach at night just don’t forget your dingo stick!
Brisbane: Well worth the effort of getting to Australia Zoo the crocodiles and koalas were the highlight of the visit and even I had a cuddle with a koala.
