Queensland Eateries

My next stop after the Whitsundays, was the Gold Coast but I won't be writing about it. I dropped by the theme parks, which many Australians will have experienced by now. Instead my last Queensland post will cover two memorable eateries, as I ate out a lot more in Queensland than Tasmania. Fish D'vine: 303 Shute ...

Mission #5: Fishing Charter

I think this is the last of my Whitsundays adventures! I might do one more post on food, but this last adventure was a little spontaneous, so not many phone photos. Our fifth day of our package was reserved for checking out, but we stayed a bit longer in the area. This meant we had nothing planned for New Year's Day. After ...

Mission #5: Ocean Rafting

Here's to another photo essay! Our last activity in our Whitsundays package included a day of ocean rafting. The trip involved an open boat, an improvement from the long 3 hour ferry to the Great Barrier Reef.

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: Hamilton Island

When we arrived at Hamilton Island we weren't sure what to expect. We knew it was big, popular spot in the Whitsundays, so the many boats in the dock made sense. It also has its own airport, but it's quite expensive to fly directly there. What we didn't know is that the majority of people get around on golf ...

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 ...
