What a wonderful trip. Only complaint is that it was just too short.
The helicopter ride was great, good time to go at twilight. The surfing lessons at Bondi were so fun. In the down time before the bridge climb we ventured around Sydney. The Taronga Zoo was spectacular. The Sydney Pass was handy for the ferry and the trains to travel all over the city. The Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb is hard to describe. The views are great and the climb was exhilarating.
Kangaroo Island was so incredible. The tour was great; the guide was incredibly knowledgeably about everything, on the island. We did a separate night tour the day we got there. So cool to see the wild animals at night. We would highly recommend going for the 5 pm pelican feeding as well.
Great experiences in Cairns. The Great Barrier Reef boat ride, snorkeling, and scuba were great. The pictures of the reef do not do it justice, must be something to experience firsthand. Horseback riding was perfect in the rainforest. The Billy Tea tour was a great ending to the stay in Cairns.
The last day in Sydney was bitter sweet. We enjoyed a great honeymoon dinner at 360 atop the Sydney Tower. We just did not want to leave. We had such a great time and felt that Australia became a part of us.
Anna wants to move to Cairns, she really fell in love with the natural surroundings and the small town feel. Hopefully in a couple years we can get a return trip to Melbourne, Perth, and West Australia.
Much appreciation on the hard work of setting up this trip. We will have memories for a life-time.
