Eric and Beth's Trip to Australia

In November of 2005, we went to exotic Australia, and saw all kinds of amazing things. Our trip included the wonderful city of Sydney, with all of its beauty. We took a day trip from Sydney to the Blue Mountains, a lovely geological park. We also went to Queensland in order to see the famous Great Barrier Reef. Our dive tour included a ride over the reef in a 7-seater plane, which was one of the most fantastic things we have ever done. After diving, we took a day to decompress and see the sights of Queensland, including beaches, a rainforest, a real-live jungle cruise, and an animal park.
