Greetings Cindy If your not going north of Bundaberg you'll miss the
best parts of the Great Barrier Reef, but you may be able to do some
whale watching in Harvey bay.
Rainbow beach is a beautiful area (near Tin Can Bay), it has a large
variety of coloured sands. Gympie has a new mining project called
"Gympie Gold" which is gold in white quartz, I'm not sure if they
give tours but it is worth a try.
In Brisbane there is a good gallery of art, jewellery called
"Facinating Facets" this is in Margaret street.
But if you really want to see the reef come to Cairns, "where the
reef meets the rainforest". (Yes that is an advertising blurb.)
Have a great holiday in our beautiful country
William Russell in sunny and dry Cairns.
