Survival guide to Australia

Australia is a place that if you love nature it will instantly take your breath away. But you have to survive the creepy crawly’s, crocodiles, cassowary’s and killer jellyfish. Be prepared for the roller coaster of your life, this is not the sort of holiday where you spend your weeks tanning on the beach and usually come out looking like a lobster.

So far my holiday has contained of hugging a koala called Samson, snorkelling with a wild turtle, scuba diving with a stingray, flying over the oldest rainforest in the world in a bright orange helicopter, watching wild whales do flips from a boat, going on a boat watching the sunset and seeing four wild crocodiles amazingly cool but terrifying at the same time, running barefoot across paradise beach, eating lunch with exotic birds one tried to steel my ice cream, I wasn’t brave enough but my brother tried crocodile, emu and kangaroo burgers, zip wiring across the oldest rainforest upside down and more still to come.

If this doesn’t persuade you if if you get the chance to go to Australia, I don’t know what will!

  1. We think it is a pretty special place, glad you are enjoying it, and don’t forget to visit the outback, we travel their regularly and I think it is where the ‘real’ Australian begins. And get one back on a ‘croc’, eat it first! Where are you heading next?

  2. Thanks for the tips, I engoy a break from the touristy areas so the outback sounds Ideal. I came to Australia two years ago and loved it so much I just had to come back. We are going to Adelaide next because have relatives up there and then off to Hongkong then home to cold wet England. It has been a roller coaster of a trip and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
