We packed a lot into our last few days in Australia, eating and surfing our way around some very different parts of the city and enjoying an incredible experience climbing to the peak of the Harbour Bridge at sunset.
During our trip to Australia we spent around 2 days enjoying a bit of coastal life in Port Douglas in North Queensland. While there, we took a day trip out to some nearby islands to see one of the wonders of the natural word: The Great Barrier Reef.
Our last stop in Australia was the city of Sydney! We spent 5 days exploring the area, checking out beaches, trying our hand at surfing, ferrying around the harbour, climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge, and mostly just eating lots of good food.
The second stop on our adventure down-under was North Queensland. Here, we rented a car and set off to explore the beautiful tropical parts of the country.
We’ve spent the past few weeks in Australia! For our first trip down under we visited Melbourne (and area), the Daintree Rainforest and Port Douglas in tropical North Queensland, and then finished off by spending some time back down south in Sydney. Let’s just say we got around.
First up – Melbourne!
Our friends Meghan and Garrett were in town this weekend, so we celebrated by heading down to the Air Canada to catch Arcade Fire play the last show of their latest tour.
Last Sunday we took it easy and headed to the Princess of Wales Theatre, with Aunt VIcki, for a matinee performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Elizabeth was otherwise occupied on Saturday, getting shot at with paint by her colleagues, so we enjoyed our Something Saturday on Sunday instead, heading downtown to check out this year's World Press Photo exhibit.
This last weekend we were out of town again celebrating our friend Alysha's birthday up in cottage country. While there we took a little trip to some nearby caves.
We spent Canadian Thanksgiving weekend in the United States without turkey dinner, so not our typical Thanksgiving! Despite that, we had lots of fun exploring Chicago and enjoying the warm weather
We're Elizabeth and Luke.
Join us on our weekly Something Saturday adventures, where we explore somewhere new or try something new!
