Michelle enjoyed spending time by the beach
She wrote: "Last weekend I had some time off work so decided to explore more of Australia and took myself on a little solo trip north to Cairns!
"Where I ate, drank, met koalas (yes I bought the photo [laughing emoji]) took a train journey through the rainforest, wandered through the heritage markets and asked a stranger to take a picture of me. I had the most amazing time.
"Yes travelling alone can be scary but life's too short to let that fear get in your way! Take the trip, make the memories & capture them to remember forever…"
The star also hugged a koala
The star's followers were quick to share their appreciation for the post, with one writing: "Love this… well done x."
Others added: "Australia is an amazing place," and: "This looks perfect."
One commented: "Looks amazing, well done for going solo," while others posted strings of heart emojis in response.
