Two Weeks Down Under

The Australian Ecosystems trip is nothing short of amazing. If being outside, snorkeling, and hiking are things you love then this trip is for you. The first week in tropical Cairns is your typical Australia experience. Local food, the Great Barrier Reef, and rainforests are some of the things I got to experience. The second week in the city of Melbourne was a different look at Australia including the outback, city culture, and museums. My only complaint was the transportation costs in Cairns because our hotel was far from the city. I spent about 100$ for the whole week. All in all this trip was such a unique opportunity and a great chance for pre med students who are unable to take a whole semester off.
