Location: Airlie to Townsville
Today we had an early start as we had to catch the bus to Townsville, it was a six-hour trip that took up most of the morning. Although seemingly uneventful we had the chance to take in the beautiful nature of Australia as we traveled through small towns and villages. After we arrived in Townsville, we checked into the local hostel where we had lunch, and then we set off toward the aquarium. At the aquarium, we had a guided tour of the whole place, in which we saw a lot of exotic and strange fish and corals. During the tour, we also had the chance to see the sea turtle hospital where several injured turtles were recovering from their injuries. Towards 3.30 we finished the tour and spent some free time in town which had a variety of shops and restaurants to pass the time. In the late afternoon, we met up at the hostel and had dinner. Shortly after we had a lifeworks session on “goal setting” to finish the day.
