    Although I’m doing the Reefs and Rainforests tour with Sailing (start Sydney), its starts on the same day and we begin the journey on the same bus. So I will be on the tour for most of the journey, just finish in Cairns :)

    Less than 50 days to go!

    Hi! I’m also doing the Reefs & Rainforests tour with Sailing starting from Sydney on 8th July. Can’t wait – not long to go now!
    I’m from near Leeds, England. I’m flying out to Sydney on the 4th and am having a few days in Cairns at the end of the tour. What are your travel plans? Would be good to start speaking before we all go :)

    I’m from Australia, doing the tour to see more of my own country, especially all the beaches. Plus it’s a way to avoid the winter weather where I live. :D

    I plan on flying to Sydney the day before and then fly home the day after the tour ends. I have to get back to work that week as the following week work sends me to Darwin and Cairns. So if you have questions about Australia I’m sure I can answer them.

    I’ll do the Facebook stuff when I get home.

    Jema, don’t be scared. Just make sure you get to the airport at least a couple of hours before your flight to allow for check-in and going through security, especially since yoYouu will be flying international.

    Hello explorer, look forward to seeing you on the trip. I wish I was doing the new zealand tour, but have to go back to work at the end of the aussie tour
