Low Isles Reef Tour

Monday Oct 23rd and the weather has finally improved. We booked a Calypso reef cruise out to the Low Isles. This was a half hour cruise on Bubbles (pic below), then a transfer to a glass bottom boat for a look at the coral. Sadly the Coral is quite grey and the colours we expect to see are no longer. The warming of the oceans really is having a terrible effect up here. We finished our tour with a fantastic hour of snorkling which even Will managed to do, so we all had a close up view of the coral.

Jungle Surfing in the Daintree Rainforest

Day 1 was mostly travel. Day 2 was relaxing. But Day 3, here’s where the fun begins. Starting with a two hour drive from Port Douglas, we arrived in the Daintree forest, put aside all fear of heights and had 2 hours of adrenilin filled fun.

Puffing Billy

Mia and Will had their first ever visit to Puffing Billy. We drove to Emerald, had lunch in their wonderful bakery and boarded Puffing Billy for the 15 minute ride to Emerald Lake. The kids had a great play on the play equipment and we spent a couple of hours just hanging out. Then it was the 15 minute ride back to Emerald. A beautiful Melbourne winters day in the sunshine.

BULA – The Fiji Welcome

Bula is Fijian for Hello and the staff at Outrigger resort have taken their Bula to a whole new level. Their welcome is just fantastic. Thursday we took a ride around the resort in one of the staff golf carts. Check out the Bula fun in this video. This is all completely unprompted.

Fiji – Highlights video

Here’s a video of the best bits from our first 3 days at Outrigger resort. Press play then click the settings wheel to change it to HD (720 or 1080)

After 4 days of good weather, the sun has now left us and we are in for rain until Sunday. Today will be 22 degrees and rainy all day. There’s a wet weather timetable but a rainy resort doesn’t work well.
