So here are the things I felt I must do while in QLD, I tried my best to complete them all but it is quite hard! Here is how I did;
See the GBR from the air Done! With GSL Aviation and it was fantastic Witness Heart Reef GSL Aviation.. worth it! Step foot on a Whitsundays island Yep, we even frolicked in the water and saw Hill Inlet from the lookout, incredible (Ocean Rafting) Ride a zip line Yep, thanks to Jungle Surfing but next time I wanna do one a little more adrenaline pumping Visit the Daintree Rainforest Done! Wish we could have seen one of those big blue butterflies up close though and the beach that meets the rainforest, maybe next time. Have a feast of seafood I’m going to say half done, we did have a fair bit of fresh prawns and I had crab, oysters and calamari.. But we still had more of a seafood feast in New Orleans (still yet to top that one) Snorkel with the biggest fish yet Yep! Not quite as big as I had hoped (I wanted to swim with one of those Humphead Wrasse fish but maybe next time). We did get to swim with a cute black Giant Trevally though. Swim with a turtle We did! At Green Island off Cairns. See a clown fish (Nemo) Yes but no, we did see clown fish but they were kind of deep down and a different colour to Nemo, so I will try complete this better next time I am in Clown fish territory.
- See a salt water crocodile in the wild
Sadly no 😦
- See a Cassowary in the wild
No not in the wild, but did see one in captivity.
