Days 10 and 11 - May 5th and 6th

Yesterday (May 5th) was our last full day in Brisbane and students and faculty got to spend a free day with no official class activities. Well, students got to roam around the city and faculty got to grade journals : )

We left this morning for Cairns and are now comfortably settled in our new accommodations. This evening we attended a two hour lecture on the Great Barrier Reef by a marine biologist. The lecture was one of the best talks I've ever heard; so informative and the presenter was incredible. I don't think students have ever sat with such rapt attention through any two hour class. 

Tomorrow is The Big Day - a full day of snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. Stay tuned tomorrow night.
