That hammock life though

Living A Dream on Daydream Island

Wandering around Daydream Island is quite literally, like a daydream. This little one kilometre slice of paradise is home to an array of wildlife. Kangaroos laze and hop freely amongst resort goers and there’s a manmade lagoon that’s filled with marine wildlife – from the slithering manta ray to the familiar orange and white stripes of the clownfish.

There’s also freakishly terrifying spiders, but let’s not dwell too long on that.

Strong winds didn’t deter Mattias and I from exploring the island. We went for a walk along the coast, taking in that fresh salty air.

We also found a few hammocks along the way!

Eventually we hit the tip of the island where the ‘rainforest walk’ starts (or really, ends). Geared with my flip flops, we tackled the nature walk with optimism. Mid-way, Mattias spotted a gigantic spider and from there on out, I was a paranoid city girl ready to escape the jungle.

For lunch, we ate at Mermaids which is named quite fittingly considering it’s by the beach where the mermaids of Daydream Island are located.

But really, the fun part of Daydream Island is that no matter where you go, there’s always kangaroos roaming around.

Thanks, Daydream Island. You were a dream.

Goodbye and farewell, Daydream Island

More later,
Leonie xo.
