New Zealand Tour if you want to have a closer look into what I will be doing. It should be ace. I am slightly concerned about the cold though since I don't have tonnes of warm clothes. I did buy some on the cheap though and sent my old clothes home (there's a big boz heading your way, Mama)!
Anyway, since I leave Australia in a couple of hours, I should probably write about the last few days in Oz.
We spent a couple of days in Cairns. Before we got there though, we arrived in a crocodile farm! I held a tiny 6 week croc, a bigger (but still a baby - I don't fancy holding a fully grown croc, thanks very much) croc and a snake. It was pretty cool - annoyingly my camera had run out of battery but Claire took some, so they should be online soon.
Anyway, we made it to Cairns and stayed in a fabulous hostel which was pretty much a hotel. It was seriously warm in Cairns - when we left it was 29 degrees C (mind you, isn't that like England at the moment?!)
We spent a day snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef. We got a boat trip and it took us to two dive sites. I took my camera which worked beautifully in the water - yay!
