East Coast Australia: Contiki plus more

About this blog

After a hectic year of work and graduate school, I'm looking forward to going off the grid for 3 weeks. With Australia lacking the culture and history that European cities offer, I'm hoping to relax on beaches by day and party at night. The trip starts off with a 22 hour plane ride, a few days in Cairns to do some scuba diving then hiking in the Daintree Rainforest, followed by a 12 day Contiki tour which travels down the eastern seaboard to Brisbane. It culminates with a week meeting up with friends from my Egypt tour.

Highlights include

* Scuba diving at the great barrier reef. * Climbing the Sydney harbor bridge. * Sailing in the Whitsunday Islands. * Surfing at Surfers Paradise. * Visiting 4 of the UNESCO World heritage sites.
