We then had a decent bus ride of a few hours to make our way to Reef HQ, the aquarium, we would be spending the night. We watched a short video about the Great Barrier Reef. We then went in three groups around to different parts of the aquarium. We did a your of the general aquarium to look at the animals that come out at night. We also went ...

We walked down onto the beach at Geoffrey Bay which was very quiet and very pretty with coral, pebbles and shells all washed up on the sand!
