Near Death on Magnetic Island

“Are you SURE you can drive stick?” I asked my Dutch friend, Shannon for the fifth time as we climbed across the steep, dusty mountain track back to our little pink “Barbie Car” which was parked perilously on top of a mountain on the tropical paradise that is Magnetic Island, “OF COURSE, don’t you trust me?” Shannon replied with a cheeky smile on her face; how could I say to my friend that the thought of getting into a car with her driving filled me with a certain dread that I normally only feel when I consider swimming with sharks or plummeting to my early death on a bungy – That feeling that you’re sure you’ll be fine, but you know, it’s a pretty risky choice. 391 more words

Magnetic island, Cairns, & Melbourne


After leaving Airlie Beach very early we headed towards Townsville so we could catch a ferry over to Magnetic island onto Nelly Bay Harbour. We had a few hiccups in the morning but luckily we all managed to make the coach in the morning so we didn’t miss the ferry. 1,063 more words
