Great Barrier Reef, Australia

After getting open water certified in Thailand, we knew we had to make time for diving the Great Barrier Reef while in Australia. To maximum our diving time and have a new adventure, we booked a 2-night, 10-dive liveaboard scuba trip off of the coast of Cairns several weeks prior to our arrival Australia.

Sydney, Australia

Sydney is a beautiful city with a lot to do. Luckily we had a great tour guide, Jon’s cousin Marilynn, who was studying abroad.

Geelong, Australia

Geelong was a special stop on our trip for us. It was one of the rare times when we really got to see a city through a local’s eyes and experience a place beyond the way a tourist does.

Melbourne, Australia

Melbourne was the first metropolis we’d visited in a while and it appeared to have a cool urban vibe to it. Street art and food are king in Melbourne and both can be found down the alleys and laneways which Melbourne is known for.
