Ultra Australia Post (lots of photos)

So, you may have been wondering what I've been doing with the rest of my time in Australia. A LOT. Here are the highlights (and more pictures coming soon from Captain Matty's Tour).

I finally saw the circular quay!
We went to eat at this nice restaurant called Crinitis. I find restaurants here to be a lot different than back home. For instance, it was a bit off-putting to spend that much money on food, and not even be offered refills ( which I know isn't customary in restaurants here ) or any type of pre-meal extra, like warm bread. Anyways, the food we did have was good. The steak tastes much different here.


Oh yes, and in the little shopping area I discovered my new store obsession.... TYPO! It's basically little cute nicknacks and stationary type items, for cheap too! I got a pillow with a deer print among other things. I'll probably post those later.

On another day we went to this place called Voodoo which is pretty much a large series of cliffs. It was a pretty spooky setting in the evening.
 
Cheesy photo time.

The next day we did a Sydney "city sights" tour, which went up to some places even Rai hadn't been. The tour also went to Manly beach - which looked like a really nice little area.

 It was part of a groupon deal involving the Taronga Zoo.  Which brings me to the next photos...

The zoo was really fun. You take a ferry then a sky rail up to the top, and make your way down. There are tons of animals to see, but our favourite was this last seal. He loved to watch the crowds and get attention.

One night we went out to Kings Cross. Some club called Soho. There are a LOT of guys in clubs here! Back home, there are mainly girls.
 Horto and me!

The next week we went to Cairns. It was a short flight and almost felt like we were back in Fiji with the landscape. Right away I liked Cairns. It's Australia but has a small town feel, unlike Sydney. You can walk to all the main places, and there is a really nice harbour strip called the Esplanade. Theres a huge public pool which we spent some time sunbathing and swimming at.

 Of course we had to do a Great Barrier Reef tour. We went with Sunlover cruises. It was a bit big/crowded for my taste but it was a really nice day. The boat ride out to the reef was VERY wavy, so many people were getting seasick. Rai and I didn't, but it felt like you were on a rollercoaster haha. The reef was very cool to snorkel in, and we also got to go into a glass bottom boat and a semi-submarine.

In Cairns we found some yummy eats, like this pizza place called Bel Paese. The 4 cheese pizza was amazing!

But our favourite, FAVOURITE place ever was Grill'd! There is one in Sydney but Rai didn't know about it until Cairns. It's gourmet burgers, and wow are they good. The chips are also amazing. I didn't get any pictures, because they hate 'foodies' and bloggers. I was scared :(

We stayed in Coral Tree Inn. It was very nice, clean and comfortable. The pool was a really nice area. We did a little photoshoot!




The pretty bandeau bow top is from Goodnight Macaroon. Super cute over a bathing suit!!

You always need a good selection of sunglasses.
The next thing we did in Cairns was Captain Matty's Barefoot Tour. It was the highlight of the Cairns trip. We went into the rainforest to a series of waterfalls and saw other cool things like big crater holes.


This was a super eerie crater lake. It was a bit foggy, making it even spookier.


 
That was a super huge post, wasn't it! Now we are headed to Byron Bay for my last week.
XO.

  15. Grill'd is awesome, I had no idea they hated "foodies" and "bloggers" I took photos anyway.

  16. Wow, you look like you're having a GREAT time out back! :)

    My favourite sentence:
    "There are a LOT of guys in clubs here! Back home, there are mainly girls."
    - as a fellow Winnipeg I know this from experience but I didn't realise that this is a mainly Winnipeg based phenomenon as every other bar/club I've been to outside of Manitoba has been totally opposite.

  23. Lovely photos. The ones from Cairns remind me of when I visited a few years ago. We did a similar thing with the boat/snorkel tour and then one of the bus rides into the rainforest and to see craters and waterfalls - so amazing. Looks like you're having a lovely time over there. Enjoy the rest of your week!
