Since I launched the blog late April – and even before – I have looked for a way to use it a bit further to make a difference in my trips. This is what I have found.
The usual way to discover Fraser Island is to join a tour but I chose to hike there to make a special experience out of my trip to this amazing place.
Brisbane, the capital of Queensland and the third biggest city in Australia is a popular tourist destination. It first appeared to me as a beautiful town with its river, its palm trees and jacarandas. And that’s it.
We dived The Needles at Julian Rocks in May 2015. Amazed by the amount of fish and sharks. I met the custest fish ever during this dive!
Fraser Island, the largest sand island on Earth. Sand dunes with beautiful lakes, rainforest, wildlife…. Very unique as there is no other place known to have a rainforest growing on sand.
At Julian Rocks in Byron Bay, the tropical warm currents mix with cooler temperate waters. Julian Rocks is rated as one of the top five scuba diving locations in Australia.
When visiting the North West of New-Zealand, the Rainbow Falls are a very nice and easy stop to consider, even if you don’t have much time in the region.
Long weekend roadtrip to the North West of New-Zealand: Bay of Islands, Poor Knights Islands and Whangaroa Harbour in 3 days, from and back to Auckland.
While preparing the itinerary to the North of New-Zealand, I randomly found photos of Whangaroa Harbour. The views were amazing with many hiking options…
The Poor Knights Islands are famous for being on Cousteau’s top 10 dives. The scenery above the water is fantastic as well, great for kayaking & snorkelling.
