A travel blog entry by mcdowel

Was zur Hölle wird hier gerade gespielt? Ich hab schon vorher schon mal was vom starken Kontrastprogramm gehört, aber hier hab ich mich mal glatt in eine andere Welt geschmissen.

Ich weiß noch nicht mal wo ich anfangen soll. Fing schon mit dem Flug an, ausgebucht. Hatte ich das letzte Mal als ich in Australien gelandet bin. Die meisten …

Sky Scrapers & Shadow-Hopping in Surfers

A travel blog entry by jenny_emily


We arrived in Surfers on thursday afternoon and Emily made the bold decision of taking charge of the map (usually Jen's job). Unsurprisingly we ended up walking over 10mins with our huge backpacks in the wrong direction until Jen took over and rectified the situation. Our hostel was right next to the Q1 building the highest in Surfers. Our hostel …

Movie World II & Final Day in Oz

A travel blog entry by hollyandstewart


Yesterday we visited Movie World for the second time. The Superman ride had been re-opened so we went on that, plus all the others we had been on previously. The ride stopped still, we were stuck in a tunnel and the staff had to come and emergency release us. We got passes to go on when it was fixed, Holly screamed and cried the whole time while …

Surfers Paradise & Wet and Wild

    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!
