    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!

    ... good morning. The caves were pitch black and that was a little freaky at first. You literally couldn't see a thing. I clung to matty a lot of the time as it got a little scary at times. The glow worm caves were part of a winery so we had a little look at that after and then pulled over in the town to have a nosey. It was a lovely little town right on top of the mountains. Our van had really really struggled to get up and I didn't think it would get up at one stage but ...

    ... pub and eating Vietnamese street food at Misschu on Toorak road. Obviously meeting up with a fellow Brit wouldn't be complete without a natter over a traditional cuppa so I went to see Eves house and had a brew on the balcony! Eve headed off to the last night of the St Kilda festival and I went back to our hotel in the city. By the Monday morning most of the jet lag had gone and we officially started our jam packed itinerary as a four which would take us all the way to Brisbane. ...

    ... it started so early that we were knackered by 1am (Sophie said to guess the time and Emma guessed 1.30am and it was 11.30pm!) and ended up eating chips on the beach!
    The next morning we had to drag ourselves up to checkout and went and got an all day brekkie on the beach front and watched a surf competition that was happening before going to get our bus to Byron ...

    ... vacation destination for many Australians drawn here by the warm weather and beautiful beaches. Since our room was not ready we headed for brunch at the nearby Kurrawa Surfers Club. Since they were not open yet for lunch, we opted for breakfast at a nearby restraurant. Scrambled eggs on toast, tomatoes, bacon and cappacino for two--$45 (ouch!). At 10:30 we went back to the surf club for a beer and wine (its 3:30 in Ca still) and later to our room for an early ...

    ... the switch it just wouldn't ignite.
    Next morning I checked the map and realised I wasn't too far from Gympie and probably the only town big enough to have a gas fitter.
    Couple of stops at the local garages along the way were to no avail, then I saw a Tradelink store, luck was on my side the storeman gave me a couple of visiting cards, one of which was for a caravan ...
