Four State Tour of Australia
I have just returned from a truly amazing trip to Australia. During the 3 weeks, my husband and I visited four states – New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia – commonly known as W.A.
We walked over the Sydney Harbour bridge, cruised under it, toured the Opera House and had dinner at the water’s edge directly below this magnificent construction. We were lucky enough to be able to visit the beautiful Blue Mountains and the Three Sisters, as the roads had only just re-opened following the recent bush fires. There are so many quaint towns and villages on the way.
In Melbourne we went to the top of the Eureka Tower which is the highest vantage point in the Southern Hemisphere – the views were amazing and the Eureka Tower is something that appears to be a very well kept secret!
We then took a flight to Cairns in Northern Queensland and of course an absolute must is a trip to the Great Barrier Reef some 60km offshore. The snorkelling was amazing as was the trip in the semi-submersible boat.
The last few days were spent in Perth under cloudless blue skies and temperatures of 30 plus degrees. They are currently undergoing a massive project in the middle of the city that involves re-routing the Swan River to meander through the centre of Perth. They are one year into this ten year project. Watch this space!
A picnic in Kings Park, Perth is a must with beautiful views over the Swan River and the city.
It is incredible to say the least that you can fly for 8 hours and still be in the same country!
