Well after a rather pleasent trip on a lovely cool greyhound bus, i rolled into Airlie Beach. This place seems pretty nice from first impressions, certainly better than Townsville. Townsville was basically like a ghost town.
Airlie seems to be the gateway to the Whitsundays, which are a number of islands just of the coast of Queensland, the reef is also supposedly beautiful here. So i’ve booked myself on a live aboard sailing trip and i set sail on Tuesday. I’m really looking forward to it, i will get to live aboard an 83 foot racing yacht with 20 other people. I’ll get to sail snorkel and have an overall wicked time…. I hope! I’ll let you all know how it goes on Thursday though when i return to harbour. Wish me luck, i better go head off and find my sea legs!
