1- Take a trip to The Great Barrier Reef. I had such an incredible time doing my first dive here! You can do this on a budget too but we chose to splash out a bit. We went with the company ‘Reef experience’
See my review for more details! (This will be up soon but I still need to upload pictures to a PC, #travelling life !sorry guys! )
2- Visit the rainforest and waterfalls. There are numerous companies that offer this but I recommend BareFoot Tours! They are number one on trip advisor and I can see why 🙂 I got to swim down a natural water slide and visit the iconic herbal essences and Peter Andre water fall. Ha!
3- Take a dip at the Lagoon. Some people may be disappointed with no beaches in the city but this is certainly a close second. Lovely views and water! It was the perfect place to sunbathe.
4- Rusty’s markets. As a traveller this was an affordable place to buy fruit and veg and some amazing dips. I got a mango for 30 cents and some organic hummus.
5-Night time markets.These are a great place to buy souvenirs for a reasonable price. I got some anklets that I adore. Also lots of people were offering thai massages for $15 for 45 mins. Looked well worth it! I had my fix of them in Thailand and was happy at this stage to spend my extra money on other things like jewellery 🙂
Hope this helps some fellow travellers!
