My highlight of these two days was the Maheno ship wreck.
With a big bus we drove to a big sanddune, on the beach where we met a dingo and to a freshwater river where we floated down to the beach. At this lookout we watched at the turtles, sharks and sting rails.

On Saturday I went with some Japanese friends, Klaudia and Gabriel to the Windin falls. During the 1 1/2h walk through the jungle a storm was brewing up and everybody was scared. We decided to walk back to the car. On the way back the weather was getting better and for our pleasure we found leeches everywhere on our legs. We freaked out. At the end we drove 4 1/2h and didn‘t saw the waterfall.

We went snorkeling and had a fantastic sight over the reef with the little colorful fishes. This sandbank is defenetly my favorite place of all places I’ve ever been. The water was cristall clear, warm and the sand was white. In the evening we drove back to Green island and we walked around the island. These days were so wonderful and I appreciated every second of this presious time. I‘m living the dream.

This was the last stop of our long weekend and it was such a good moment to sit there and watch at mothernature. We drove home on perfect streets with a beautiful sunset.
On Sunday we went to this huge waterfall and drove through the Outback to another one. On the way we saw a cow on the street, some wild kangaroos, horses, goats and a big bull next to the river.

This Monday we had a day off and I drove on Sunday with two friends by car to Cape Tribulation. It is in the northern of Cairns and it’s the only place in the world where the rainforest meets the beach. The Daintree Rainforest is the oldest on the earth. It was kind of magic to stay there for two days. We stoped in Port Douglas and visited the market. The weather was very windy. We had great fun.

29 September 2018

Finally i met the Australian known animals and I could touch them. It was so amazing to watch the crocs during the feeding and when a man provocated a attack. I fall in love with this coala on my arms. He was so fluffy. I really wanted to take him home.
