OMG Super Excited – Going to Whitsundays and Magnetic Islands

There are travel agents at the Nomads Hostel in Noosa who assist with booking exciting trips and Jessie managed to get the last space on everything thing with them that fortnight. Tom and Macauley had booked weeks ahead and Jess was not going to be left out and alone.

Happily for Jess she met a woman on the Greyhound to Noosa who walked with her to the Hostel only to discover she was sharing the same dorm as the lads.

So we got a crew already ahaha !

After her first night at Nomads Jess took it easy by the swimming pool. Then the newly formed crew went for a walk through the stunning Noosa National Park in search of The Fairy Pools.

However, after a brilliant, tranquil walk the pools were submerged by the tide crashing in, but that was an experience in itself.

Having relaxed, made new friends and read books for 2 days the crew were embarked on their next trip they had been busy planning.

A Greyhound Bus to Agnes Water to stay in an Airbnb for 2 nights, then on to Airlie Beach for 4 days, then on to the Whitsundays, back to Airlie Beach, then Townsville and finally to Cairns.


Arriving in Agnes Water the crew were picked up by the 5 Guest Palm Airbnb host in his big blue SUV and after months of living in dorms in hostels, they all had a taste of a home again – even if it was for just a couple of nights.

It was at this point of Jessie’s trip that I asked her to look out for jobs for me!


Back on board a Greyhound for a long 9 hour coach journey this little break in Agnes Water was an excellent idea. They were heading towards another Nomads Hostel at Airlie Beach and it was Karaoke Night!

Couldn’t stop laughing lol

Stinger Season at Airlie Beach means wearing a stinger suit or going to the beautiful Lagoon to swim in. Jessie said the temperature was about 39 degrees so lounging around a lagoon was the best thing to do.

Nobody went into the sea.

Luckily before Jessie went out to sea various emails came through to her. One was from the insurance company agreeing to pay for her Bali dog bite medical bill. So with a little pressure off her financially Jessie looked forward to her trip to the Whitsundays and could book her flight to Perth.

Jess told me that when you are travelling you always tell your travel stories to the new people you meet along the way.

Poor Mac and Tom have heard the same story now over 20 times!

However, her story had now got ahead of her, and when she started to tell the story sometimes people would say…

Oh you’re the girl that was bitten by the dog in Bali

Jessie had to say goodbye to Carrie for a few days while she went on another trip.

Those were the best days of my life

So with the cyclone heading down to Brisbane the weather was good for the weekend to sail to the Whitsundays with Tom and Mac!

On board me boat!!

Sailing in the Coral Sea

Went snorkelling this afternoon n saw a turtle!!

Loads of us are gonna sleep on deck under the stars….

We could see the Milky Way …which was sick


Whitehaven is the best beach in the worldddd

…the sand can be used for many things including cleaning silver… I cleaned all my rings n they are all so shiny now..

We had to wear Stingray suits bcus stingrays and lemon sharks swim at the beach n we saw LOADS

While travelling back to Airlie Beach on board the Catamaran, Jessie said all the travellers looked at each other wide- eyed as the boat leaned over. The captain was having a wail of a time – must be a racer?. She loved it! Back on land and back to Nomads before travelling onto Townsville for one night and then a ferry to Magnetic Island.

Sailor Girl lol

Carrie met up with Jess again in Townsville and as a reformed crew they continued to Magnetic Island. They managed to find a car rental place that rented cars to under 21’s, so had a Suzuki 4X4 to drive around in. Jessie and Carrie had other ideas…..Jess had just passed her driving test before she left for Oz…Driving around in a convertible car on a beautiful island- sounds like heaven.

Beautiful Wild Koala

They were told to go to a Toad Race. The toads race each other out of the circle…

Was the weirdest thing ever. Me n Carrie didn’t like it

Jess and friends got the boat back to Townsville and a Greyhound to Cairns which is where she leaves the group and continues onto Perth to meet up with Pat to start the Working in Australia part of the trip.

Mac, Tom and Carrie all went with Jessie to Cairns Airport in the middle of the night to wave goodbye. A small row of travellers were sat outside the Airport as it wasn’t open yet

lol…..Okay, so a woman just came out n said We’re open but no one is moving….I don’t understand why no one is going in

Right I’m going in

I’m bossing this!

Everyone followed me in……( smug face)
