Several people have asked me where I visited on my recent trip to Australia, so I thought that I would just write a post with a few pics of my holiday!
We began by stopping over in Bangkok for a few days and among other things i took and elephant ride and also

visiting the floating market!
From here we flew to Perth and from there took a river cruise, visited Fremantle and I also managed to catch up with a friend of my daughter's from her University days.
Here is the tram we took our tour of Fremantle on.
We then went to Margaret River and visited several wineries.
This was my first glimpse of a kangaroo... it was a way away but if you squint you might just spot a couple between the rows of vines in the centre of the picture.
We then flew to Alice Springs and visited the Flying Doctor Service, The School of the Air and the first telegraph station and the actual 'Spring'. These were all brilliant visits and really interesting.
From there we went on to Uluru (Ayres Rock) and had a dinner under the stars following champagne and canapes at sunset! Fabulous! The following morning we were up to see the sunrise at the rock!
The flies were a real pain.. hence the fly net on my hat!
From here we flew to Cairns and had a couple of days there followed by a couple of days at Port Douglas.
Here we took a trip out to to Barrier Reef, where we took a helicopter trip over it, took a semi-submersible trip to see under it and and snorkelled to see in it! It was a brilliant day and the weather was really kind!
Here is my hubby following his snorkelling adventure. A friend took one of me in my stinger suit, but I haven't managed to get that pic from them yet.
 From here we flew to Melbourne and took a superb trip around the cricket ground (my husband was in heaven) and also visited the Old Gaol! (That was great fun!) It was also the rather sinister venue of Ned Kelly's hanging!
From Melbourne we flew to Sydney and had a wonderful stay once more. This time we managed to see the opera Carmen at the Opera House, which was spectacular and also took a seaplane flight over the harbour. 
Following this lot we had a couple of days R&R in Sentosa, Singapore!
What a fab holiday!
Hope you weren't too bored!
