Blue Mountains Nature and Wildlife Day Tour from Sydney
Just outside of Sydney is the Blue Mountains which is a favorite when visiting Australia. The Waradah Aboriginal Centre is such a neat place to come to learn all about Aboriginal culture and heritage. At there’s so many different ways to explore the Blue Mountains, cableway, skyway, railway and walkway. Wow! What a view! So the Aboriginal legened has it that these use to be three sisters and they were turned to stone. There we go! I feel like I’m walking on air, this glass floor above the Echo Valley. That waterfall goes so far down. I’m on the steepest passenger train in the world. It’s 52 degree incline. Hold on tight. Oh my God! It’s like a roller coaster ride. After taking in the views from above, I can head down and enjoy the national park from any of the numerous walking trails. I’m here at the Featherdale Wildlife Park, I have my passport and I’m ready to check out some Australian creatures. You’re impressive looking. That pelican is gigantic. It’s amazing to think the Koala sleep 18 to 20 hours a day. This guy loves posing for the camera. Right Mr.Loudy? He’s so soft. Come gimme a kiss. Come see the spectacular Blue Mountains to learn about Aboriginal heritage and culture, to finally hang out with kangaroos. This has been a truly Aussie day.

Cairns – Australian Butterfly Sanctuary
Let’s fly on in to the butterfly sanctuary. Not only can you enjoy all the butterflies fluttering around but you can see the process of them going from eggs, to caterpillars, to butterflies. So many butterflies came to say hello. I think he likes me. You can look under a microscope to see what the wings and the eyes look like. So pretty. This is such a neat experience. Amazing.
Cairns – Daintree Rainforest
This post is gonna be really exciting. We’re gonna learn about Aboriginal culture and venture into the Daintree Rainforest. The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest living rainforest in the world and the only one to survive the Ice Age. Mossman Gorge is one of the shortest rivers in Queensland. It’s a natural spring that provides fresh drinking water to the surrounding areas. These are called arrow trees and in the past, these were used as markers to show people where to go. This way next. We stopped here in a private, little swimming area in the middle of the rainforest. Woo. The water is so clear. You can hear the sound of the stream and all these trees surrounding you. It’s beautiful. This has truly been an incredible day.ü
Cairns – Great Barrier Reef
Whether you get there by boat or by sky, the Great Barrier Reef is a must when you visit Australia. The Great Barrier Reef is quite a diverse aquatic environment that everyone can enjoy whether you’re just snorkeling or going for your first time dive. This is one of the only places that you can snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef from the beach. Oh my goodness, the water’s great, there’s so many fish just swimming around and oh, this is surreal! It’s time to hop on the glass bottom boat, let’s check out some coral. This is so cool. You know, they’re swimming all underneath and usually there’s a floor here, but it’s glass so it feels like I’m just walking on water and the fish are right underneath me. And we’re airborne, woo-hoo! Wow, this view is extraordinary. From way up here you really get an idea of how big the Great Barrier Reef really is. Watersports works up quite the appetite so I grabbed some food from the buffet and I get to enjoy it as I look out over the reef.
