For the past 2 months we have been travelling up the east coast of Australia. It’s been incredible and we have been involved in so many new experiences and challenges.
The main thing I have noticed about Australia is the huge range of wildlife. From massive crocodiles to tiny spiders, it does seem as if most animals out here want to kill you. As well as the frightening Australian wildlife, they also have a huge range of adorable animals such as Koalas, Kangaroos and dolphins that in wildlife parks you are welcome to stroke and cuddle whilst learning about there habitat and nature.
The second thing that is iconic to the Australian east coast is the beaches. The beautiful white sand and turquoise sea makes some of them by far the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen.
As a traveller, it is always exciting when you find quiet yet incredibly beautiful areas that are free from tourists and we achieved this when we visited an area just outside of Rockhampton named Yeppon.
We stayed at an incredible hostel named Yeppon beach house, where the woman who owned treated us as if we were family. Then the next day we set out on a empty ferry to a tiny island named great Kepple island, which is an almost abandoned area of the Great Barrier Reef.
This was by far our favourite destination and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning to explore Australia.
All in all, we had an incredible time in Australia and met some incredible people. If you are interested in my travels feel free to follow my travelling Instagram: gabyandadams_travels and you can see how we get on in the next and final part of our adventure, Japan and Vietnam!
