Australia Day 2: Fitzroy Island & Green Island in the Great Barrier Reef

Hello Love Bugs! I started this post last night at 9:40pm Australia time, and I couldn’t finish it because of the horrible spotty internet in the lobby. The lobby was filled with people trying to get on the same server. Luckily for my jet lag, I am up at 4:36am, and I am the only one here. Hallelujah! We were blessed with another day full or sunshine, and we took advantage of every second of it! Today, my dad and I went to Fitzroy Island, and Sean and his Dad went to Green Island. I like to say, we divided and conquered. The pictures below were taken on my Nikon D3200 and my GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition.

Fitzroy Island, aka the hidden gem of the GBR:ย One of the most beautiful places I have EVER laid my eyes on. It is true paradise. The crystal clear blue ocean meets the mountainous LUSH terrain. We saw wildlife, and GIGANTIC limestone and granite boulders.

Truly breathtaking

This picture tells 1000 words. Our beautiful hike was outlined by HUGE boulders, and blue water vistas. I am so happy we stumbled upon this gorgeous place.

We went on a 3hr hike to the top of the mountain, and found this freak along the way! Creepy.

The beaches on Fitzroy are full of coral. There is barely any sand in certain places.

I cant even explain the beauty of these reefs!

We also had the chance to snorkel a coastal reef in the Great Barrier Reef. What are we wearing you ask? Stinger suits! We are in jelly fish season, and 2 species out there can kill us in 2 minutes. Adventurous? i know.

AND…. a little bit of Yoga to sooth the soul. NAMASTE.

Greenย Island:ย A beautiful small island in the Great Barrier Reef. Green Island is located much farther in the deep blue than Fitzroy Island. It is great for walking through trails, and looking at the scenery. You can also snorkel here, and visit a National Park.
