Just Got Wicked

well, after a busy first week in Australia we managed to keep our heads above water, do a trip plan (with mad props to the parental units for moral and financial support) and have some fun as well.  Here is the new itinerary planned by lucy and i with the assistance of Lindsay at Wicked Travel in Byron Bay.

22, December (today) – At Main Beach Hostel in Byron Bay, working on finalizing trip plans and sun tans

23, December – check out of Main Beach and explore Byron, get on bus to Brisbane at 8:30 p.m. arrive in Brisbane 9:30 Queensland time, check into Base Brisbane Hostel where we will spend Xmas and stay until the 26th

26, December – Bus from Brisbane to Noosa, we get picked up at 4:20 p.m. from the bus stop and spend 3 days / 2 nights in Everglades National Park at Bushcamp, we have canoes ready to go so we can explore the everglades

29, December – catch bus from Noosa to Hervey Bay, check into Palace and, with them, via ferry to island, spend 2 nights / 3 days on Fraser Island camping and exploring, this is where we will spend New Years!

2, January – travel over night and sleep on bus from Hervey Bay to Airlie Beach, arrive there at 9:30 a.m. where we get picked up and put on a sailboat called Freight Train for a 2 day and 2 night adventure of the Whit Sunday Islands

6, January – check out of Magnums Airlie Beach Hostel and take bus to Townsville, we are staying on Magnetic Island at Arcadia Hostel

9, January – Bus up to Cairns where we will stay with the Serpent Hostel

10, January – get picked up from Serpent at 7:40 a.m. for a ride out to one of the oldest rain forest in the world to play in all day and stay in Cairns till the morning of the 12th

12, January – walk to Reef Fleet and go with Down Under Cruise and Dive out in the Great Barrier Reef where we will swim and snorkle in the reef all day, stay in Cairns that night

14 January – fly from Cairns to Melbourne to catch flight to New Zealand!

so all buses are booked, hostels are booked, only a few things here and there to iron out but they are easy things like picking which of the many times to take the ferry to Fraser Island and what time to fly out of Cairns, as we are traveling we are going to hopefully get in touch with josh and mal and see what they are thinking about for NZ but lucy and i are making plans already just in case, also we already have accommodations starting up in Hawaii!   we are very excited to get this trip really started now and thanks again for all the help.  here are some photos of what we have done so far and there will be much much more to come.
