... from Australia, another photo of me with a Koala, it has to be done though. Met two lovely girls whilst at Bungalow bay, and we decided to do the Forts Walk all together which was good.

You could certainly tell we were English in the queue for the Airlie Beach ferry. There were only two passengers wearing wet weather gear, everyone else was in shorts and flip flops!
