Got week off work with Pete (who also works for Pippies Beachhouse and also a mate of mine) so we drove to Airlie Beach which took us 14 hours! and still stayed in the same state. mental.
Airlie Beach is amazing, the water is such a beautiful colour. The sailing boat was called Anaconda III - had 26 people in total on which was a great number. The cabins were small but enough space to live for few days. The tour is 3 nights and 3 days and goes through Hook passage to Whitehaven Beach (very famous beach), Luncheon Bay where got to snorkel surrounding the reef. This reef is very popular and a lot of tours get the opportunity to go here. The next day headed to Bait Reef where the best snorkelling experience was....got to see turtles, shark, nemo fish and lots of other fish!! The last day got to snorkel at Blue Pearl Bay off Hayman Island. This was such an amazing experience!!! The first reef I managed to cut my hand open and bled quite a lot which was not fun...but apparently I was still good to stay in the water which was cool so I didn't miss out on the experience.
On the way back to Rainbow Beach stayed one night in 1770/Agnes water which is still 4-5 hours north of Rainbow Beach. Stayed at the hostel called Southern Cross. It is like a mini resort & is pretty amazing there. I would suggest for anyone to go there if they get the chance.
Whilst at Agnes Water we did the scooteroo tour. Which is where you get to ride scooters around 1770/Agnes Water, see wild kangaroos at the side of the road or in grass land and watch the sun set. At first was really scared but by the end was doing 80 kph / 50mph.
When got back worked for 2 days and got the chance to go to Fraser Island for a 3 day 2 night tour. This is the third time got to go I love Fraser Island
Back to work I go now ... Until the next little random trip I book!!
