The Sails on Horseshoe is a great spot to stay at the lovely Horseshoe Bay on Magnetic Island.
The hosts, Chris and Alastair, are lovely people who are extremely gracious and accommodating.
The rooms are spacious townhouses, over two levels, which are just lovely. The beds were comfortable and it was great having a bathtub!
There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and I'd highly recommend this hotel!

We caught out first East Coast bus early in the morning, southward bound! As we were going on the less popular bus and the less popular direction, the bus was pretty empty. Cairns had been great, nice and relaxing but also some good fun. It would have been better however to have been a little more proactive, maybe go and visit the famous Daintree rainforest with the endemic cassowary, there was also a trip ...
... We then picked up our friends and headed to the Kuala sanctuary. It is so peaceful here and so pretty. I am currently writing this at the edge of the pool surrounded by eucalyptus trees with Kualas lazing in them. Amazing. It has such a chilled out vibe here with Bob Marley playing in the background.

Although it's called Airlie BEACH, there's not actual beach where you can swim as there are way to many box jelly fish (also known as stingers, if you get stung you'll be dead for sure). I guess Ozzies have a thing with calling places non-matching names. The three of us went to have dinner at the restraunt next of our hostel together with ...
... little more. We woke up to an organised breakfast at the hostel that we had booked earlier, glad we did as it was a lovely spread and we had the chance to be one on one with the animals. The kids got to hold and play with snakes, lizards and birds and got to cuddle a koala. We took the barge back to the mainland later in the afternoon to hitch up and drive to Airlie beach ...
... very odd shape… there’s no doubt about it: a croc had been stalking my crab trap for easy feeds of crab. The worst thing is that the croc had remained stealthy every time I had visited the spot to set and check the traps and the boys had fished there most days without spotting the beast. Bottom line: you may not see them but they’re there and they’ve spotted you! Beware!
We met a new family from Perth who are travelling like we ...
