How to Choose a Great Barrier Reef Trip

How to Choose a Great Barrier Reef Trip No visit to beautiful, tropical Far North Queensland is complete without a trip to the iconic Great Barrier Reef. Personally I love going to the reef.

Introductory Dives on The Great Barrier Reef

Introductory Dives on The Great Barrier Reef I've always had a bit of a bucket list, even if it wasn't written down. I think a lot of us do. Mine has always included pretty common bucket list items, such as skydiving, bungee jumping, and snorkelling. But it never included diving. I thought it just seemed… Continue reading Introductory Dives on The Great Barrier Reef

Bloomfield Track & Archers Point

Bloomfield Track & Archers Point   The dancing flames of a campfire...The clear, starry night sky...the earth's natural elements are so beautiful, so pure. There's something so relaxing about being out in nature. So Conor and I had been speaking with some friends for a while about going camping and we finally did it. Unfortunately… Continue reading Bloomfield Track & Archers Point

Day Tripping Around Yungaburra

Day Tripping Around Yungaburra I love living near the Tablelands, and when I first moved to Far North Queensland I went there every chance I could get, to explore new waterfalls and natural swimming holes. Unfortunately life has gotten in the way a little since then, so I haven't been for ages. So when my… Continue reading Day Tripping Around Yungaburra

Day Tripping to the Great Barrier Reef
