Mission 5: Air Whitsunday

The Whitsundays adventures continue, and I think this will be more of a photo essay than anything. Why? It was one of my favourite days - perhaps second best after sleeping under the stars of the Great Barrier Reef. Not only did we get to see Australia's best beach, Whitehaven, we also got to snorkel in a private ...

Mission #5: Great Barrier Reef

One of the most popular trips in the Whitsundays that you cannot miss is the cruise to the Great Barrier Reef. We actually ended up going twice because it was automatically in our travel package and we also booked the Reefsleep experience for The Adventouriist's birthday. What you need to know firstly is that it's about ...

Mission #5: Daydream Island

Our first trip from Airlie Beach was a twin island escape. The most popular and biggest service to the Whitsundays islands is run by Cruise Whitsundays. We were off to half a day at Daydream Island and the second at Hamilton Island. But first - we wanted to use our breakfast vouchers! We squeezed in a meal at Capers, a ...

So my recap on my Queensland adventures begins! We stayed in the "heart of the Whitsundays", Airlie Beach. It's where most cruises depart from and is about three hours from Mackay Airport. There's also an airport in the closer town of Proserpine but less flights go there (the number is growing though). We booked a ...

So I wrote about my last adventure in Tassie but I haven't mentioned a lot about the campervan sites! I wrote an article about top reasons to campervan the state here. Before we went on this trip, I discovered many locals on TripAdvisor opposed to campervanning, especially for inexperienced people. We did it anyway, didn't ...

Mission #5: Hobart

The end of the circle - Hobart! Most people will tell you to not spend long in Hobart, but we had a day to waste before our flight, so we dropped by MONA and Mure's Upper Deck for dinner. MONA Of course we had heard of its quirkiness, and I love weird things. But still - I didn't have it too high on my list of things to ...

Mission #5: Richmond & Tasman Peninsula

Port Arthur takes more than a day to explore. Our second day there was Christmas Day, but a warning - not all buildings are open to the public despite the site being open. It seems this way because of lack of staff. This means on our second day, we had some time to spare after finishing Port Arthur quite quickly. First we ...
