It was great fun and the sunset was stunning, but I was glad to get off as the old glutes were starting to ache. – Kiannmac

4. The Chinese and Japanese Garden in Darling Harbour, Sydney

It was very peaceful (you wouldn’t believe that you were in the middle of a city), and all its features were explained so you knew what their significance was. – Allmans

5. Jervis Bay (again!) in New South Wales

It was like going to another climate, by the time we reached this area it was arid, warm and sunny. – Slpbls

That night we were witness to the first storm of the wet season – it was amazing to see but we quickly discovered that our tents weren’t too waterproof! – Amandaseims

9. Tasmania – hiking

It’s a beautiful country, a lot of people say similar to Scotland. Apart from the fact that it was green with mountains, I couldn’t see the similarities until it started to rain…..when I could have been in the highlands. – Nickyloo

10. Cairns, Daintree Rainforest and the Barrier Reef in Queensland

The coral formations were astounding because of the sheer variations in shapes, sizes and colours. There were so many fish to see and it was especially amazing as just before we stepped in, the heavens opened as a large shower passed over us – a little unexpected on the Great Barrier Reef. – Jimandnat
