    Whitsunday Islands - Tag 3

    October 13, 2017 in Australia

    Heute war der letzte Vormittag auf dem Boot. Wir waren noch mal schnorcheln. Da hab ich endlich mal Nemo in seiner Anemone gefunden. Haben noch mal versucht zu segeln. Aber ohne Erfolg. Es war einfach mal wieder kein Wind da! Mittags waren wir dann wieder im Hafen von Airlie Beach. Da ich kein Hostelzimmer mehr hatte, habe ich mich an die Lagune gelegt und nichts gemacht. Abends war ich noch mit ein paar Leuten von meiner Bootsgruppe was trinken, damit ich jetzt im Bus gut schlafen kann.Read more

    Airlie Beach

    February 18 in Australia

    Heute wachten wir aufgrund der Hitze bereits sehr früh auf, frühstückten schnell und wollten auschecken. Dabei blockierte uns auf dem Weg zur Rezeption allerdings eine Gruppe von weißen Kakadus den Weg und wollte auch nicht so wirklich von der Straße weichen. Wir erfreuten uns also ein wenig an dem Anblick von den Tieren, als sie uns dann doch den Weg freimachten.

    Dann ging es zur Touristen Information, denn wir wollten noch unsere Tour nach Whitehaven Beach buchen. Gesagt getan: Morgen geht es für uns also wieder raus aufs Meer!

    Da wir bis zum Check-in am nächsten Campingplatz noch etwas Zeit hatten, fuhren wir zum Strand und machten es uns dort an einem schattigen Plätzchen bequem. Das Wasser war allerdings so warm, dass wir auch kurz hineinsprangen um uns „abzukühlen“. :-)

    Vom Strand aus, hatten wir bereits eine Schildkröte und einen kleinen Rochen gesehen!

    Anschließend suchten wir unseren Campingplatz, checkten ein und sprangen zuerst in den Pool. Bei dem Wetter kann man auch eigentlich nicht viel anderes machen.
    Hier fühlten wir uns schon deutlich wohler! Auf dem Platz liefen Truthähne, sehr hübsche Enten und tausende Geckos und Echsen herum und am Abend wimmelte es wieder von Flughunden über unseren Köpfen. Wir hatten unseren Spaß dabei, sie zu beobachten.

    Airlie Beach

    September 18, 2017 in Australia

    We left Bowen around 10am and went to see the Big Mango on the way. It was only an hour drive to get to Airlie Beach.

    The caravan park has the most amazing water park! The girls ran from the van as soon as they were able to get changed and we didn't see them till Joe went to find them for lunch. We took the opportunity to get washing done and gave the van a good clean. After lunch the girls waited the bare minimum amount of time possible before heading back to the pools and Joe and I enjoyed some much deserved quiet time just vegging out at the van which was great and managed to feed some of the locals. Bringing a little quality bird seed is so much better than giving them bread and biscuits. Joe and I also worked out the last week of our trip and had a look at what there is to do in the area.

    It's 5.30pm and the breeze is just starting to get a bit cool. We're doing BBQ for dinner and planning a chilled out evening.

    Airlie Beach

    September 19, 2017 in Australia

    It's been a very quiet day today.

    We woke up and headed to the pool for the pancake breakfast. As we finished eating it started to rain and that was pretty much the way it was all day. Of course it didn't stop the girls from going to the pool however we decided to put off our look around Airlie till tomorrow and just enjoyed a quiet day at the van. Joe managed to wash the car and we did the caravan park's word jumble when we made the girls take a break from the pool for lunch.Read more

    Looking around Airlie Beach

    September 20, 2017 in Australia

    We woke up to a beautifully sunny morning. The girls went to the petting zoo feeding at 10am and were able to bottle feed a lamb and calf. They weren't as interested in the ducks and chickens. Then we went to have a look around.

    We drove into Airlie and parked near the Lagoon and walked along the Bicentennial walk along the beach with a view of the stunning Whitsunday blue water and the many yachts mored off shore and then through the Main Street. We had a look in a souvenir shop and bought some dresses and pins then stopped for lunch at the Sidewalk Cafe which was really good!

    We went back down to the Lagoon and sat in a little patch of shade we found while the girls went for a swim. We later found out that the Lagoon was only reopened three weeks ago after the damage from cyclone Debbie forced its closure. You can still see from the state of the trees and the amount of construction fencing throughout the area. I can only imagine what it looked like six months ago.

    We dropped into Best and Less to grab a new sun shirt and swimmers for Lara so obviously that meant they both needed t'shirts, shorts and a dress as well. We ducked into Woolworths to grab a couple of things and headed back to the van.

    The girls headed to the pool one last time and Joe and I sat and chilled out for a little while, trying not to think too much about packing up for the driving day tomorrow. We had quick and easy hotdogs for dinner before the kids headed to the free outdoor movie and we started packing up. Looking forward to an early night!
