OZ Vlog #2: Contiki Beaches and Reefs, Cairns, Australia
Welcome to the first official day of my Beaches and Reefs Contiki Tour! Today I got a chance to meet the group of contikiers I will be traveling around Australia with. Our meeting place, the AJ Hackett Bungy site in Cairns. Get ready for an action packed get-to-know-you complete with jumping off bridges and having a couple drinks in the jungle.
Seeing that I chickened out of bungy jumping back in Queenstown, I thought I would try a different adrenaline rush. So I convinced fellow travel mate Adriane to do the Minjin Swing with me, the world’s fastest jungle swing.
So I am going a bit out of order here and we are actually going to skip a day and jump right into our third day on tour. Reason being is that our second day requires an entire blog post to itself.
So our third day on tour consisted of a white water rafting trip down the Tully River. Unlike the previous rafting trip I have taken, this trip was an all day event consisting of 5 hours of rafting. It was also much more technical then my previous trip, including grade 3-4 rapids.
Since the river levels were low, there was a lot of time in between the rapids and we got stuck at quite a few points temporarily. Regardless, it was a very fun day and I even managed to get a bit of color from the sun.
