Location: Townsville, Australia
Today was another awesome day in Townsville. We spent the morning at the Reef HQ Aquarium, where not only did we see awesome aquatic creatures and learn tons about the Great Barrier Reef, but we also got a behind-the-scenes look at the aquarium. The behind-the-scenes tour had to be the best part, seeing how such a large aquarium functions opened our eyes to just how balanced ecosystems need to be. We had the afternoon off, some went to town, some went swimming and others chilled on the boat while studying for oceanography. That evening we departed for the Whitsunday Islands and wrote our OCE final. We’re all excited to dive the GBR and see some of those awesome creatures from the aquarium.
