about these photos:
I visited QLD in June 2015 first in a rented camper van and then again the same month taking advantage of a cheap domestic flight. As it was winter, QLD was a lot warmer being farther north, so outdoor activities were done almost daily. From a spectacular whale watching excursion to see humpbacks to visiting loads of friendly and cuddly animals, Brisbane delivered.
On my second visit I had an amazing experience exploring the Great Barrier Reef. From aboard a sailboat on a four day adventure I snorkeled in the clearest of waters, saw soldier crabs taking over a small island, and enjoyed a day at the Whitsundays - a spectacular place where I saw the most colorful bands of beach and sand and sky I had ever seen in my life.
