Loved it all!

03 Jan 2016 - 16 Jan 2016

Loved this trip, was very busy & full on. So you get to see a lot in a short time. I did the Sydney Bridge climb, tried surfing at the surf camp. Loved Bryon Bay with its hippy vibe (not too keen on the hostel there tho) went sea kayaking & saw so many Dolphins! Fraser Island has to be my fav place on the trip, it's just so beautiful!
I did the trip with sailing, & I don't really think it was worth the extra. The boat was very cramped & hot & uncomfortable, though the experience of sailing was good. I think I would have preferred to stay on land at the hotel & just done the sailing day trip! That would be my only negative of the trip.
The sailing day trip on the Great Barrier Reef was so good & we had the best weather! Water rafting in Cairns was also ace!
