Shelby and her family landed in Cairns, Queensland, where they spent the first five days of their trip. Everybody there was so friendly and laid back and the scenery was unbelievable!
Shelby got to go horseback riding along the ocean which was a dream come true for her. She visited the Cairns zoo where she played with kangaroos, held a koala bear and a baby crocodile!
A highlight of Shelby's trip was snorkeling! She told us, “I got to see little Nemos and the ocean was one of the most gorgeous colors of blue I have ever seen in my life!” After a busy few days traveling around Cairns, the family headed back to Sydney for two days of big city shopping!
Shelby couldn't have imagined a better trip, the only down side was the sunburn she got. Leaving Australia was hard but she was eager to get home and tell all her friends and family about everything she had experienced!
