Setting Sail for the Whitsunday Islands

Well Hello again to everyone!

After a very elongated leave of absence (I gave up attempting to blog when travelling in the end, far too busy and far too expensive to find decent wifi!) I've returned to the ol' Great Britain and FINALLY downloaded all the millions of photos and videos I've been taking over the last 3 months!

SO today's post is about the incredible sailing trip to the Whitsunday Islands off Airlie Beach in Queensland and why it needs to be high on your list of things to do in Australia!

Insider's Guide to Australia: Off the Beaten Track

Happy Hump Day to everyone out there! Again sorry for my elongated absence - it's true that Australian hostel wifi is really not the best, oh and I have been rather busy with all this backpacking malarkey! Hoping to get a few more posts up in the next few weeks though! (But don't hold me to that)
This post is - as you've by no doubt guessed - a guide to some of those not so obvious places in Australia that you really should add to your bucketlist. I'm happy to say I've ticked off a few and have now got some more great ideas for when I head a bit further down the coast. This post has been written by the lovely Amy from - a true Aussie and therefore I fully trust that she's got some good insider's tips!

The Amazing Uncle Brian's Tour - Part 1

Hi again! I'm still here I promise, things just might be a bit slow as I'm pretty busy with the amazing-ness of Australia right now!

Little update, I've been alone and in Cairns for 3 days now! It's incredible, I'll just tell you now! I've been staying at Mad Monkeys which is a lovely hostel by the way - so clean and close to everything and the people working here are so friendly and helpful! (They also offer free breakfast, which is actually really nice and a free BBQ on Saturdays which was a godsend yesterday when I didn't have time to go out shopping!)

So far I've been on a lush hike up Mount Whitfield by the Botanic Gardens, a hilarious pub crawl round all the fab bars/clubs in Cairns, a trip to the lagoon and markets and a bike ride along the sea front plus a free BBQ! 

And yesterday, I went on my first tour which - although it's my first and I have nothing to compare it to - was incredible! I went off on a tour round the beautiful waterfalls of the Atherton Tablelands with Uncle Brian's tours and I 100% rate it! There was about 13 of us plus our awesome guide Sid (who was blooming hilarious), who went off on a mini-bus out to the Atherton tablelands playing all sorts of hilarious games and singing along to some great tunes along the way!
