Brisbane to Sydney and back

A travel blog entry by lukebillinge


... Q1 tower which is the tallest building along the east coast and in Australia. 320m tall to the point of it's spike, it provides really great views over the coast, city and look onto the distant mountains. Afterwards, we went for a surf lesson! There was 5 in our group and we had a go for a couple of hours! To be honest we were the best 2 at it and both got standing up relatively quickly, but swallowed a hell of a lot of sea water in the process! It's very ...

Surfers paradise- Gold Coast

A travel blog entry by hollytripp


... this on the bus, my first with leather seats and free wifi so I'm very happy! My next stop is Brisbane, only a fly in stop but I'll wizz round and see what there is! I'm quite glad to be leaving surfers paradise, it didn't live up to expectations. I hope Brisbane will be about more interesting and not so plasticky. Speak soon, I'm off to download some films for the next few days, may as well use up all of the free wifi while I can! ...

Byron Bay/Gold Coast

A travel blog entry by abiandkatie

... t stay late and instead went to find pizza. The next day we went in search for the shopping centre and spent the day browsing through clothes we couldn't afford. We did buy a ticket for the Wet and Wild water park though for our last day. On our last full day we set off to Wet and Wild water park, which was an (expensive) 30 min bus ride away. We spent the day walking around the park and trying various rides. Most of them involved some sort ...

Day 4


Oh, the group I spoke to last night quietened down (mostly girls) but the guy who stormed off an hour prior – slamming doors, kicking one of their cars, swearing at full volume while his family and/or friends did so back at him – returned at 3am with the same civility, although less agro.

Anyway, although tired, it could not steal our excitement to be crossing ...

Byron via Nimbin to welcoming Tumbulgum 1,266kms

A travel blog entry by fromthemill


... the ubiquitous free public BBQs found in public parks all over Australian. Having seen one cute Australian icon, we tucked into another. Kangaroo cheese burgers really are very good, and we ended a great days drive at the fantastic little community of Tumbulgum. This place is really nothing more than a populated slip road between Murwillumbah and Tweed Heads. But that is doing it a huge disservice of sloppy description. About 100 houses are arranged in a wedge between ...

    we liked the location right opposite the Q1 building & right next to the beach. the kitchen was of ok standard and the bedding etc was clean. we just didnt like that you couldnt bring your own alcohol into the hostel as they have their own bar and the prices of the drinks in their bar are quite expensive and the drinks are understocked!not a very sociable hostel!
