Kempt Katoomba

The final leg of my trip was in Sydney, one of my favourite cities to visit. Wanting to do something I hadn’t done before, and maybe not so achievable on a layover, myself and Katie (sadly it was back to work for Sophie) decided to head out to the Blue Mountains National Park to the…

The Great Barrier Reef

Continuing on from my previous post… we had finally arrived in Cairns and straight away got speaking to the concierge to pick out the best Great Barrier Reef trip!
