TANGALOOMA ISLAND RESORT

Tangalooma Island Resort located in Moreton Island is around 75 minutes cruise ride across Moreton Bay from Brisbane. It is the island resort where the Running Man team did one of their Australia episodes featuring Rain.
I was extremely excited and immediately entered nostalgic mode reminiscing every scenes from Running Man episode.

In the resort, visitors could do so many activities such as Quad Biking riding, dolphin feeding, sand surfing, etc. We had scheduled to have a sand surfing activity but it was raining that day, so they change the activity into whale watching. I was very lucky to be able to visit Queensland during the whale migration period and being able to have this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

It was surreal to be able to see sooo many whales in the ocean very close.

DI BELLA COFFEE

Di Bella Coffee is Australia’s largest specialty coffee roaster and it is absolutely a must visit for coffee lovers.
AnakJajan had a fun tour inside their coffee factory learning and understanding the process from selecting the coffee beans, roasting till packing it. I also had a hands-on latte art practice and I must say that making a latte art is not as easy as it looks my latte art was very messy I had to save it with 3D kitty latte art 🙂
