I was so surprised at how different each location we visited was, and I loved them each for different reasons. Sydney was a vibrant city, with upscale hotels, restaurants, and plenty of nightlife.
But in Cairns we were closer to the wild...
My favorite part of the trip was getting to ride in the sea plane, which is what we used to get to Hayman Island.
It was an amazing experience, and I would love to go back one day.
I do have ONE TIP THOUGH. We took this trip over our summer break, which was winter in Australia. I would encourage anyone who is planning a trip to Australia to make sure it's during our Winter.
If not you might end up doing some of this during part of your trip...
It looks sunny, but it was cold and rainy some of the days, so we played A LOT of cards!
