... a stop at Townsville, but this time it was a temporary goodbye as I'll see them again in Cairns, my last stop before flying back to Melbourne. I stayed in a really nice and quite hostel where I got a room with ac (instead of just a fan, like I booked). Unfortunately the ac was so cold that I actually woke up 3 times during the night because it was so cold. After I arrived I did a beautiful, but very steep walk to the top of a gigantic rock. After buying myself some timtams and ...
... the phone! Finally it was time for the main attraction, the koala. I had paid $16 extra to hold a koala and have a printed photo, easily worth it! She was so cute and furry haha, although you're told not to hug them too tight because they see you as a tree...and trees don't hug! The Koala posed for some great photos, and I even managed to get Barry in a few as well, they looked like siblings! I will never forget that day, pics to come :) Today is Thursday 13th and this ...

... Cardiff, you just can't seem to get away from the Hunter, its everywhere.
We decided to spend another night at Bluewater so on Monday morning (Isabelle's birthday) we drove into Townsville. We spent the day having a look around town, had lunch at the casino, did a little shopping then back to Bluewater. We were told that last month (August) two vans had been stolen from here so we didn't want to stay away from the van too long.
