We moved to the beautiful beach side town of Agnes Water to do a pet sitting job and we've decided we're not ready to leave yet. This means we get to explore all of the amazing places nearby including the incredible Southern Great Barrier Reef Islands. You'll find incredible national parks as well as hidden gems in some of the regional towns not visited by many on the East Coast Australia.

BYFIELD NATIONAL PARK, YEPPOON

WATERFALL CREEK FALLS, HERVEY BAY
Our video to the beautiful Waterfall Creek Falls in Mount Walsh National Park shows you a hidden swimming hole near to Hervey Bay and Bundaberg.
SOUTHERN GREAT BARRIER REEF ISLANDS
I had only really heard of The Whitsundays before we ended up staying in Queensland. Being so close to the Southern Great Barrier Reef Islands means we're able to bring you some of the lesser known hidden gems.
From Bundaberg (or Brisbane, Gold Coast or Hervey Bay) you can visit the absolutely amazing eco-friendly Lady Elliot Island which is home to the world's best diving with manta rays, and a lagoon with so many turtles, you won't find better snorkelling anywhere else in the world.
The nearby Lady Musgrave Island is also a coral cay but it's a deserted island. Here you can camp for next to nothing whilst you immerse yourself into desert island life surrounded by turtles and plenty of marine life to keep you busy.
Further north near to Rockhampton & Yeppoon is the beautiful Great Keppel Island. Here you can go on a day trip like we did or stay on the island. With plenty of water activities and hiking routes, make sure you visit the beautiful Long Beach, one of Australia's best beaches.
