Monday - 10 December - After arriving on Magnetic Island yesterday, I saw a couple of girls that i'd met on Rainbow Beach. They wanted to hire a car and drive around the island. I also wanted to do the same so we ended up hiring a Barbie mobil. We did loads in one day including going to a Koala sanctuary, hugging a Koala (Melinda, who was super cute) and getting very close to other animals. Then we hiked up to the fort lookout which took a couple of hours but the views were great.

Tuesday - 11 December - We were all heading back to the mainland today so i dropped the girls off at the ferry and returned the car. My bus was an overnight to Cairns so i filled the day by swimming in the pool and having a very rare day lazing in the sun. When that go boring, I hung out with Dustin, Ollie and James, a few lads I'd met in Airlie Beach. I headed to the ferry about 10pm and bedded down in a bus shelter until the Greyhound arrived, I felt like such a hobo!! Metal benches are really uncomfortable!
