One of the undisputed highlights of our trip to Australia was the day we spent snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. Here’s the story of our day swimming with exotic fish, checking out giant clams and confronting my fear of sharks.
We spent five weeks in Australia exploring the bustling cities of Melbourne and Sydney and taking a three-week road trip down the East Coast. Along the way, we had some amazing adventures including sailing the Whitsunday islands and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. We also fulfilled a British childhood dream by visiting Ramsay Street on the Neighbours Tour. Take a look at all of Australia travel stories, pictures, videos, travel costs and tips.
