    1. I am going to Australia in June but only have a week. We will be in Sydney and since there is so much to see there and hope to drive along coast to Brisbane we don’t think there will be time to do the GBR. Suggestions on must sees while we are in that area? Also- where did you get to hold a koala? I hear many places only let you pet them.

      1. I have a lot of posts on things to do around Sydney you can check out! I loved Royal National Park. Driving up the coast would be a great way to see a lot in a little time — stop in Port Stephens, there is a lot of really cool stuff to do there (I have a couple posts on that as well). You can’t hold a Koala in NSW, so you’d have to do it once you get to Queensland (where Brisbane is!).

  1. Hi Chelsea, if I may add three suggestions to your Bucket List…
    1. Visit Kakadu National Park, NT
    2. Visit (the) Grampians National Park, Victoria
    3. Cross the Nullarbor Plain in a 4WD
    You won’t regret these!
    Kind regards,

    1. Ahh thank you, I will absolutely add those 🙂 I made this original list before coming over here and have realized there are so many more things I want to do! Thanks Graeme!!

  2. Go to a church in anstralia, and get a rosary painted by the abalone.
    We miss you!!! And hope you are having a great time!!

    1. Merry Christmas Chelsea!!!!! We miss u soooo much!!!! Hope to see u on FaceTime on Christmas Eve!!!! Also Happy New Year!!!!

  3. We miss u to! U should go on a fishing 🎣 trip! (Charters recommended because we know them) also maybe u can take the kids to! I forgot to ask about the figi trip, but was it good? See ya on Christmas Eve🎁 with the help of FaceTime ( hopefully it doesn’t lag and lose connection) Lots of love❣️😊

  4. Hey! We just started our blog, but we spent a semester in Australia in 2015. It’s such an incredible place! When you drive the Great Ocean Road, make sure you stop and explore the Loch Ard Gorge. And if you can try and go whale watching in Hervey Bay! The Sunshine Coast is a great place for a relaxing beach getaway if your interested too!
