【Great Barrier Reef ,Cairns Adventure, Australia】5天4夜世界遺產大堡礁冒險之旅!

01.jpg

 

魚妹在25歲的時候旅居澳洲一年,玩遍東澳後,依舊念念不忘我在環遊世界遺產大堡礁記憶猶新的記憶;魚妹決定保留當下最真實記錄的英文遊記(非專業請見諒),如果你還沒至大洋洲探險,下年度的飛行計畫絕對不能錯過凱恩斯呀!

凱恩斯是魚妹在澳洲旅行的最後一站,8月中旬的季節正是南半球的冬天;天真的我以為在熱帶地區的凱恩斯一年四季都很炎熱,平均下水溫度只有約16-18度,為了欣賞美好的海洋生態,穿上防寒衣有絕對的必要,伴隨著發抖的掙扎,無論如何都要下水;我們安排了54夜的水上活動如游泳、潛水、泛舟等,豐富了我們在凱恩斯的旅行,凱恩斯也是個昂貴的城市,不知不覺我竟然在短短的五天,花費比原本預計還高出1倍。

 

Cairns was my last destination in Australia. It’s so worthy to come there to do divers activities what you want to, but just remember to make sure you have enough money. We spent 5 days 4 nights staying in Cairns, and there were lots of relaxing ways for us to discover how nature Great Barrier Reef is, such as swimming, rafting, snorkeling and so on. What’s more, we confused the condition of weather in Cairns so we though there must be hot in summer. Conversely, it’s so cool during these days. As a result, we were so struggled to jump into the water. Even though it’s not quite hot, it’s still the perfect choice to stay there. In addition, I thought Cairns is an expensive city because you might not know how many times you need to withdraw money. Honestly, I did 3times during these days. I love Cairns, I love Queensland.

Day 106th August,  Brisbane→Cairns

魚妹從布里斯本出發至凱恩斯,此趟旅伴是魚妹在昆士蘭大學語言學校認識的好朋友Leo,由於經費的關係,在澳洲每趟的旅遊,幾乎選擇入住背包客棧,入住背包客棧的好處是能直接感受當下的人情味。

 

Global Central Backpackers是我們入住的背包客棧,它的旅客來自世界各地;相較於墨爾本Green House在價格上又更親民,來一趟充滿海洋風情的凱恩斯,你很快就能融入當地友善的氛圍。

 

We have suffered from the dizzy situation all the time when we were staying in Cairns. As far as I am concerned, nothing is possible to happen such as carsickness, seasickness and airsickness. In my opinion, we stayed in Global central backpackers and it’s cheaper and stuffs were friendly. That’s why it was better than Green House.

這裡是凱恩斯市區的著名景點「海濱戲水區」,旁邊就是大海,邊游泳可以邊欣賞海邊風景。一來到水池旁就看到一個女生站著用單手換比基尼,結果風一吹泳衣就掉了,相信這裡是喜愛比基尼的天堂!自由行的好處就是你可以隨興決定路的方向;我們沿著濱海大道散步走了快2小時,終於來到了植物園,抵達後能夠感受雙腳的疲憊,便在藝廊中心休憩後返程。

That’s Esplanade Swimming Lagoon. The amazing things that we saw, which was a pretty lady fixed her bikini with her one hand only. Then, the bikini dropped down the ground. It’s definitely kind of paradise for men.

We searched the things to do in Cairns. One of was Botanic Garden, so we walked along the coastal in 2 hours. However, we were so exhausted because of the far distance. We gave up so that just took a break at the gallery for a while.

凱恩斯並不大,街道充滿各式各樣的旅行社與背包客棧,不難嗅出觀光勝地的凱恩斯有多麼地受大家喜愛。傍晚我們沿著濱海大道散步,在愜意中結束了第一天的市區巡禮。

We strolled along on the Esplanade street in the evening, we didn’t know the exactly what time it was. There were lots of travel agencies and backpackers. All you need to do was choose what you would like to and pay the money.

Day 207th August , Moore Reef, Great Barrier Reef

 

26.jpg

 

澳洲的生態非常多元,親自體驗澳洲的海洋,我完全被多元的大自然生態給震懾;人類真的好渺小呀!自從親眼見證這趟大堡礁驚豔之旅,我已完全愛上海洋博物館及動物星球頻道,我深深被海洋的神祕吸引。

精彩的行程總在第二天來到高潮,這趟旅行完全符合喜愛海洋的我們;搭乘SUNLOVER,沿途經過翡翠島並在摩爾礁停下浮潛,驚嘆的大堡礁之旅就此展開。從碼頭出發抵達目的地約2小時的船程,船上提供自助餐、玻璃船、半潛水艇船,而「海底漫步」這項體驗,至今仍是我最驚豔的一趟海洋之旅。

 

We were so excited to snorkel under Moore Reef. It took 2 hours from the Reef Fleet Terminal to Moore Reef, we booked tour named SUNLOVER.

海底漫步這項行程真的非常推薦,人都已經在大堡礁了,就算怕水也要下海呀!海底漫步時,我們戴著至少30公斤的頭套,在腰部綁上至少4塊石頭,為的就是使我們能夠順利潛下海底10公尺。剛下水時有些難受,因為溫度實在太冷了,我的牙齒一直發抖,曾有一度覺得自己無法呼吸。

 

I did recommend the tour of seawalker at the Great Barrier Reef where is one of world heritage. The headgear was at least 30 kg, so that it could make sure we dived down under the seabed 10 meters. Due to the cold temperature, I thought I couldn’t breathe.

 

旅人們分梯下水,我們摸了好多魚,幸運的我能和珊瑚礁最大的魚「蘇眉魚」合影,這也是我第一次與好多魚親密接觸,心中的感動無法言喻。

A group of five individuals into the water together, we saw a lot of fish and took amazing pictures underwater at the same time. One of which was the largest coral reef fish, its name was Humphead Wrasse. Furthermore, it’s my first time to be with fish, it’s so cool.

這是我與珊瑚礁最近的距離,我盡力了。因為穿著救生衣,實在潛不下去;來到大堡礁,有許多深潛的旅人,一定愛死這裡!來趟世界遺產大堡礁之旅,我想是人生必體驗清單之一。

 

I guessed I did my best snorkel, and this was the nearest distance between coral reefs and me. Due to the life jacket, I was not able to dive properly, it’s a pity that I didn’t have any experiences of scuba diving. If I had done scuba diving, I would have been able to see more beautiful scenery. Basically, snorkeling is our bucket list.

為了適應水中16-18度的溫度,儘管多麼驚嘆眼前的生態,依然無法止住顫抖的身軀;為了繼續延長當一條自由自在的魚兒,我們盡可能不上岸,在水中裡游來游去。

Because of only 16-18 degrees underwater, we did our best enjoy underwater. However, the good thing was that we were pretty lucky as we got all sunny days during these days.

Day 308th August, Rafting

 

21.jpg

 

真心推薦泛舟行程,這是我人生第二次參加泛舟,第一次在台灣花蓮的秀姑巒溪,第二次就獻給了凱恩斯。不是我刻意要說國外就是比較棒,而是在安全措施上它們真的做的比較嚴謹,以下就來分享超好玩的泛舟心得。

That was the second times to rafting for me. The first time I did in Hualien of Taiwan. Honestly, aspect of safety, Australian company was more comprehensive than Taiwan. I didn’t mean everything from Taiwan was bad, but they were much more serious indeed. Our team was all from Taiwan, and our instructor was so professional.

在凱恩斯泛舟旅客來泛舟應該都是同一家公司,從市中心到泛舟地點約2.5小時;一路上風景美得不像話,一望無際綠油油的大草原與一堆香蕉樹,使得我完全放鬆、完全放空。

 

All the rafting tour in Cairns would belong to the same company, Raging Thunder Adventures which is the largest adventure company in Australia. Also, from CBD to the rafting site it took about 2.5 hours. Passing by the roads to our destination, I saw much more beautiful scenery such as clear grasslands, a bunch of banana trees. Before we started, we rented the suit and shoes to keep warm and protect ourselves. It’s so important.

我們被分到第10小隊,全員全部來自台灣,教練會說簡單的中文,他在這條河泛舟的經驗超過10年。泛舟前,一定要配備齊全,不管是救生衣、防寒衣、鞋子、安全帽、划槳都是必備工具。在下水前教練特別叮嚀注意事項,以及分配好位置;隊長坐在最前面,我們全部都要聽從教練的指示,一開始我們的其他夥伴一直在嬉鬧,教練非常嚴厲的責備他,如果你不聽從教練指示與信任,是非常危險的一件事情。然而,泛舟是一項團體合作的運動項目,有趣的地方也在這裡,完全體會了隊友的重要性。

 

Our team was no.10 and our members were Taiwanese. Our coach has experienced on the river over 10 years. Before setting off, you must make sure everything is ready before you jump into the river included life jackets, shoes, helmets, paddles. You must listen and follow your coach carefully to make sure safety. What’s more, it’s kind of team work to accomplish our goal.

為什麼我說他們安全措施做得比台灣好呢?1.工具較齊全。2.坐姿是雙腳在船內,台灣是跨坐,一隻腳在內一隻腳在外。3.充足訓練每一個指示如前進、後退、上、下、左、右、停、蹲下、回去、跳、下水等命令,確保每一個人都非常熟練。特別的地方是,不管你會不會游泳,全部都要落水學習如何迅速救人,等這些訓練全部熟練之後,才能繼續展開泛舟的冒險。

 

Why did I say that the safety measures are better than in Taiwan? Firstly, they checked tools seriously. Secondly, our feet were inside the boat, Taiwanese is not. Third, there were plenty of training every single indication such as forward, backward, up, down, left, right, stop, squat, back, jump, and other command to make sure everyone has enough training. Particularly, whether you can swim or not, you have to learn how to save your partners. Then, you can launch into your adventure.

 

其中一次一個非常大的落差點,教練不斷重複每個人在不同位置應該怎麼準備。在一次落下的地方,我們的前排隊友與石頭距離不到5公分!這也說明了為什麼一定要專心與服從教練的指示,安全至上呀!但是過程真的非常好玩,團隊合作真的非常的重要;每過完一次障礙時,大家就會舉划槳來慶祝一番。

 

In one case, it’s dangerous. Our coach repeated many times how everyone should be ready in different positions. Then, our partners who were very close stone less than 5 cm. This explained why we had to concentrate and obey coach’s instructions, because safety is the most important thing. It’s really excited and fun.

 

Day 409th August,  Just Relax, GSL Aviation

這次的旅程非常的悠閒,不像之前的全部都規劃好。一大早我們就在游泳池旁邊游泳,很悠閒的游泳與躺在陽光下睡覺;並嘗試在水中睜開眼睛,結果照片非常愚蠢。

The journey was so relaxing. In the morning, we had perfect but expensive breakfast. After that, we swam, we slept. We enjoyed relaxing the lovely sunny, which was the wonderful moment.

下午搭乘飛機空中俯瞰大堡礁的美麗,這短短的50分鐘飽覽美景,過程卻非常的痛苦;因為飛機很小再加上天氣熱,幾乎沒有人不暈機,我還是很盡力的拍攝照片,把美景帶回家。

Afternoon we flied overlooking the beautiful Great Barrier Reef. Even though it took 50 minutes only, I was so struggled because of airsickness.

晚上到市區附近韓國人開的按摩店按摩,長達10個多月沒有被按摩;雖然沒有比台灣舒服,依然是一種放鬆。

In the evening, We did Korean style massage. Perfect!

Day 510th August

這天的行程就是沒有行程,我們在陽光下躺著,悠哉與海相安無事的對望,下午435搭乘飛機離開凱恩斯,雖然昆士蘭的天氣有時劇變的很可怕,但我依然喜愛昆士蘭溫暖的天氣。

Actually we didn’t plan any itinerary at all, we just lay down the ground to enjoy the nice weather.

《旅遊後記》

在澳洲期間原本最喜歡的是墨爾本,但來到凱恩斯之後我無法做選擇。這裡天氣實在太舒服了,非常的悠閒與安靜。尤其是當看到大堡礁及海底生物的那種感動,親近大自然真的是一件很棒的事情。如果預算不足,只能選擇來澳洲一個城市的話,我推薦凱恩斯,這裡真的非常值得。親自來過凱恩斯,你會因為探索海底世界而感到快樂。如果擁有足夠的勇敢與強健的身體,非常推薦擁有深潛經驗的人前往,一定更能感受海底世界的美,我突然好想回味《海底總動員》這部電影,有如魚兒自由自在的生活著,這也為什麼,我叫做魚妹。
