Yvette***Queensland is the only state in Australia that allows tourists to hug a koala, woo hoo! As such, Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary is the MUST go place for all animal lovers. Thanks to trip.com, we managed to get a discounted entrance ticket at $20+ (Tips: buy in advance, usual price is $40). There are two koala photo session each day, it is totally free (ranger will hug the koala for u), however if you want to hug a koala by yourself, you are required to pay for another $25, still worth it since you can’t hug it anywhere else. There is a very big compound reserves for kangaroos, kangaroos and wallabies are roam freely in the area, I somehow managed to catch a selfie w a kangaroo! But, beware of your steps, their shits are everywhere on the floor. Some other activities to highlight are sheep dog herding show, falcon and owl feeding.Overall is a very good experience, easily accessible by bus (direct to CBD area), people normally spend 3-4 hours there.
杨泽娅The Great Barrier Reef, where at low tide some of the coral reefs are exposed to the water to form a coral island. The landscape is fascinating, inscrutable, and the current is extremely complex, with over 400 different types of coral reefs, including the largest in the world. There are 1,500 fish species, more than 4,000 mollusks, 242 birds and unique scientific conditions. It is also home to some endangered species of animals, such as the pygmy and the giant green turtle.

Maritime landmark The Southport Spit isn’t just a favourite for local fishermen throwing in a line.
But make your way to the permanent sand spit that separates Southport Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean at sunrise, and you’ll see one of the district’s best vistas. Budding photographers can’t afford to forget their camera; the jetty and its population of local fishing fans make excellent subject matter.
Stayed while on business in Cambridge. About a mile and a half walk from the city center or on the main bus routes. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms, although small have everything you need and the bathroom is a decent size. The only criticism is that the TV is no bigger than a laptop screen and the WIFI is terrible (this is the reason for only 4 stars). Breakfast was cooked to order and was very good. Reasonable price and nice stay
A sensational place right on the beach in Palm Cove, a little village with plenty of Restaurants and NuNu at Alamanda has a Fantastic Breakfast for in house Guests, we had the Breaky for the 5 mornings we were there. A great way to start the Day, Fresh fruit and Juices followed by Musili and a selection of cooked eggs charizo or Bacon for 2nd course followed by great coffee. Alamanda has 3 pools an Adults only right on the beach under the palms, or the heated Kids pool and Juccuzi, or settle in around the main pool. The rooms are very Large for an Aussie Hotel with great beds and a selection of pillows. Can't wait to book it again soon..
Alamanda Cove is in a fantastic location and the beachfront apartments has fantastic views and sea breezes. the apartments are spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The staff are professional and on top of any issues immediately.
Great experience, wonderful staff that were very friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Snorkelling was amazing and Phill junior has us giggling with his commentary. The Evolution was kept super clean and food was great! Loved it even though I got a little sick I give them an 11 out of 10 and I’d go back again any day ⭐️
The vessel was comfortable, the Staff were friendly and helpful, the food was well presented and tasty. The first snorkeling spot was great and plenty to see but the second spot was not as interesting.
A faultless event from start to finish! An atmosphere of fun and friendliness throughout, but always with a strong undercurrent of safety for all on board. The depth of care, and attention to detail. was exceptional; catering to every level of skill, ability, and nervousness, with kindness and encouragement. Seeing and exploring the reef speaks for itself. You must do this! We were certainly well fed too, and it was all fresh and delicious, and of excellent quality! The entire crew, even Uncle Eddie, were fabulous! We would do it again tomorrow!
The Great Barrier Reef doesn't really need much of an introduction. It is the single largest composition of living organisms in the world, and without a shadow of a doubt, nature's most revelled masterpiece.
A vacation at the Great Barrier Reef will definitely be right up there with the best memories you'll have in the span of your life. Endless sea, a sprawling archipelago, and the unreal coral reef under the water just make for a mesmerising scene altogether. There is so much to do at the reef! You can cruise through the islands and the reef, dive underwater for an up close and personal tour of the amazing beauty of the coral, go on bushwalks on islands such as the Hayman, relax on beaches for hours on end, or even skydive over the Heart Reef, perhaps the most scenic dive spot in the world. You can stay in resorts on the islands, waking up to the unbelievable beauty around you, have a selection of amazing local food, and then get back to your day of exploring this absolute marvel of nature. Without a doubt, a trip to the Great Barrier Reef will give you memories to cherish for life.
Turkey’s rugged coastline was so much more breathtaking than we even imagined! It is full of lush mountains for as far as you can see as well as gorgeous bays and beaches. The waters are so blue that it’s even been nicknamed the Turquoise Coast! No matter where we were sailing to, there was always an incredible view to enjoy— it felt like we were living in a postcard!
Spending each day in a different location is such a cool way to explore an area and really get the feel of the culture. We found Turkish people to be so friendly and welcoming, the food to be delicious and full of flavor, and the towns to be so unique and charming. We loved wandering the streets of the towns we docked at each night, and couldn’t wait to see what the next day had in store!

Nice little cozy café in Rockhampton. I like the environment and decor in the café. A place to chill too at lesser busy hour. This place is packed with people at Breakfast, lunch and dinner. I went after the lunch hour. Was thinking having their coffee which other friends said very nice, but the weather was hot, so I go for smoothies. The food was nice too. The price is okay, affordable. Lovely service, friendly too. The most important thing I enjoyed. A must-visit for one of the best coffees and meals in Rockhampton. Highly recommend it! Note: It super packed, you need to have a little patience.☕️☕️☕️🤗

Well, was staying at this inn when I was in Rockhampton. The place was nice and quiet. The location is good with lots of eating places around like the Hungry Jack's Burger just opposite the inn also McDonald's only 5 mins walk and many other restaurants too. The staffs there were super friendly just like friend. Breakfast was nice. It also has a small, nice pool to de-stress after you come back to the inn. The room was decent. Clean and tidy. Room service available. Laundry no problem was provided. Staying there is like staying home as the staffs really treat you very nice. They are very helpful too. Love meeting people like this. Overall I enjoyed my stay there, no complaint. Price is reasonable also. I love it.🥰
