Probably going to be a lot of posts on this one as we crammed a lot of stuff in and did a lot of active things but I will focus on one of my highlights of the trip, a plane trip over the great barrier reef.
It was an absolutely gorgeous morning, we set off about 8am in this little tiny plane, seriously, we were at the back of it and this is what it looked like. I've been in bigger cars.
We flew over some mountains and Whitehaven beach, which was lovely and then we went over to the main attraction, the reef. You see photos of it but it really doesn't prepare you for how it looks in real life, it's absolutely breath taking, gorgeous. It's really strange how there's the deeper sea which is a really deep blue and then the clearer waters of the reef. You can see shadows under the water when there are big things like sharks and turtles.
It's magical, I'd urge you to go visit if you're ever in the area. I always was a bit indifferent towards going to Australia but I think it's worth going just to see this. Gushing over.
