Day 7 of our trip was actually our 1 year wedding anniversary (July 30th) and we were in Mackay staying at my sisters house, it was really good to see her and her pets. Trent and I spent some time together in the morning, then Trent went fishing & I went shopping with Nicole for the afternoon. I purchased some really nice things whilst in Mackay, my haul video will be at the end of this post! Then we all went out for dinner together to Outback Jacks that evening. It was a nice anniversary and I enjoyed spending time with my sister.

After our dinner.Day 8 we did a day trip to Eungella National Park, it's roughly an hour drive from Mackay. We saw some platypuses in the wild which was really cool as I've never seen a platypus in the wild. For lunch we ate at the Eimeo Hotel , it has an amazing view and the food was nice. We then just walked on the beach and then went back to Nicole's house and relaxed and prepared to head home the next day.
Before we left for our day trip Nicole and I filmed a quick video for you all...
So now you have met 'Pepe' & 'Ozie' (I call him Watson)

I love bushwalking and being around nature. I think these photos are really nice.

So this was our last day of our holiday, the next day was a lot of driving (but I will do a post on all that).
We enjoyed our time in Mackay, it was nice to see Nikki and visit some places we've never been to before. The weather was quiet nice considering it was Winter and we had a lot of fun.
