Sunsets and Surf with Sailing (Start Whitsundays)
★ ★ ★ ★ ★

This is Australia (Anything can happen)

25 Aug 2014 - 06 Sep 2014

I was worried the weather might be a little cold traveling in August (Australia's winter), but I had such a pleasant experience. And huge thumbs up for the Sailing! Highly recommended when you're in the Whitsundays.

Very moderate weather, with some rain in Sydney at the tail end. Watched some beautiful thunderstorms off the coast in Coffs Harbour, after spending the afternoon taking surf lessons at sunset. Definitely the highlight activity of my trip! Not to mention the bonfire that evening.
