Whitesunday Islands and all the way to Cairns!

Fraser Island was a perfect part of our journey and it would have been enough to be 100% happy. But it was not all! Lots of great things were still in front of us. One big thing was our 2 Days/ 2 Nights Sailing trip around the Whitesunday Islands. This trip started two days after our Fraser Trip was finished and we had to drive something about 1000 km to come to Airly Beach from where our boat departed. On our way we stopped in Rockhampton, a very good tip of Jule. There we ate Kangaroo, Crocodile and Beef served on a 300°C hot stone on which we had to cook it ourself! That was not only a really good meal but also a very cool experience. The next day we went on our sailing boat called “Habibi” and were sailing around the Whitesundays with about 20 other people. The nature around was looking like the paradise itself! Beautiful untouched beaches with white sand, turquoise water and all day long the hot sun shining!

More over we were snorkeling @ the Great Barrier Reef two times which simply was breathtaking . All the fishes and corals and one time I even saw a huge turtle I touched and followed for a few meters. Back on the mainland we drove up to Cairns while enjoying the way. So we stopped at the “Wallaman Falls”, huge waterfalls that simply look fantastic! Finally we reached Cairns and also nearly the end of our time together. Before Micha left to Sydney we had one very big thing in front of us. We booked a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef for one day! Our boat trip to the swimming Island out there was not so good as I got seasick. On the plateau itself it was much better. I did two introducing dives because I do not have a divers license and Micha did the first dive with my group to remember everything and the second with the licensed divers. I also went snorkeling again and together we had a 5 minutes scenic helicopter flight over the reef which is not describable at all! This view simply is too mind blowing! You did not see it, you can not know it! Trough that 5 minutes is so short it still was the best of all of this great trip! One more day in Cairns and the time was on for Micha to visit Sydney and so we had to say good bye. All in all we had a time that even was to good to be called “great” and for me it was tFraser Island was a perfect part of our journey and it would have been enough to be 100% happy.

    Take me with you! 😀
    You asked for a comment, so that’s what you get.

    Das Wasser auf den Fotos ist ja mal absolut fantastisch…vor allem auf dem dritten Bild im Blog. Faszinierend! Da könnte man fast meinen, du willst garnicht wieder weg.
    And you definitely got me jealous with these pics! Ich glaub, Australien wird mein nächstes Urlaubsziel. Hab zwar leider nicht wie mein Vater ne Tauchlizenz, aber wir können mal schnorcheln gehen, das kann ich auch. 😉
