Daydream Island was one of my favourite places that we stayed in Australia. It was this incredible resort with it’s own Living Reef! We got to see a feeding of all the fish, I got to hold a baby shark, some starfish, a sea cucumber (yuck) and pet and feed some sting rays (Pancake & Pikelet). One of the other things I got to do was feed a barramundi, which was a really neat experience! I didn’t get it on video, but check out this video to see what it was like: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FPmOP0JheA4, scary and fast and so unique!
Daydream island is so beautiful, it had a unique view from every side of the island. There was “Lover’s cove” and the coral beach, a HUGE screen that made an outdoor theatre, and nice big rooms with balconies that overlook the living reef. It’s also got a bunch of wallabies and kangaroos that live on the island as well as various birds and reptiles, like a monitor I saw building its nest on the beach.
We had lots of great food, including this amazing honey straight from the comb! After breakfast we laid on chairs on the coral beach and went kayaking through the water. Around dusk you could spot sea turtles just off the beach swimming around.
I think it was the most relaxing time we spent on our tour, I loved every minute of it.
