Great Barrier Reef | Travel Photography

It is so crazy but usually we don’t get to explore the country that we are living in. When I was living in the United States, I just went to a few places like NY, Las Vegas, California, with so much work and other priorities we take for granted and we forget to see this wonderful world. 

Since I moved to Australia 4 years ago we have been trying to explore as much as we can, I feel I lived 10 years in less than 4 and that’s super exciting. After I found out that I was pregnant we decided to go on a Babymoon and the easiest thing was to find a place that could accommodate all the needs, not really easy to travel with a big belly but it was so fun. :)

I loved to explore the Great Barrier Reef, if you follow my posts, you already know that I love to be in contact with the nature and as a photographer this is really enough for me. We stayed in Arlie Beach, really close to the port of Airlie. We did a few boat trips using Cruise Whitsundays. We went to the great barrier reef, Whitsundays and Hamiton Island. My favorite place to be was Whitsundays just because it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world (I’m not lying, you can google that! :)

We saw beautiful places, turtles and a huge stingray. :) 

BIG TIP: If you go to Hamiton Island make sure to book a buggy in advance. They have buses that goes around the island but is so good to have the experience to drive around the island without waiting for any transportation. 

If you want to have a nice lunch, Manta Ray restaurant is so good and has an amazing view. 

One thing that I’ll probably do it differently is instead of staying all days in Arlie Beach, we could stay a few days in Hamiton Island (they also have everything there: A small market, activities and even a hospital.)
