Aussie Adventures: Part 2

Hamilton Island is one of the Whitsunday islands on the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, Australia.  And this was HANDS DOWN my favorite part of my trip.

Fun fact: there was a sign that said “pregnant kangaroo” so I freaked out and thought she was giving birth when I first saw that little baby roo

Not jealous that all koalas do all day is sleep and get high on eucalyptus leaves

I look weird (this is a picture of a picture) but it doesn’t matter because this little nugget loved me which was my only goal

And we’re off…

The one activity that I’m sad that I didn’t get to do was the “Sea Turtle Tour”.  Basically a guide swims with you out to where the turtles like to chill and you hang out with them.  We were only on the island for 3 days so there just wasn’t enough time to do it all.

Next up… New Zealand!
