Flag of Australia  , Queensland,
Tuesday, September 23, 2008

Decided to have a bit of beach/sun/sea time before we got to Melbourne so we flew from Japan to Brisbane. From there we flew to Hamilton Island on the East coast which, we discovered was too expensive for accommodation so we got a ferry to the mainland to a backpackers haven called Airlie Beach. Michael was happy to be back in the homeland and had a Carlton Draught to celebrate.
Next day we headed out on a boat with a bunch of other backpackers for a three day, two night cruise of the Whitsundays. The other backpackers on the boat were cool out. Canadians, Irish, Scottish, English, Israelis, French, Germans and two Aussies - Michael and the Skipper 'Wozzer'! We saw turtles, sting ray, crazy bat fish, whales, found nemo and Ailbhe did her first dive at the Great Barrier Reef. We snorkled. We saw the sun set, the moon rise and dived off the roof of the boat into the cool East Australian waters. The photos speak for themselves.
