Driving to Townsville

A travel blog entry by staceytravel


Today we drove from Mackay to Townsville. On the way we drove through Home Hill, which was really cool. We got to Townsville a couple of hours before sunset, so we drove around exploring. There is this really pretty hill called Castle Hill, that we drove up. We got to the top at sunset and the sky was pink, orange and blue, but it was very ...

Magnetic Island

A travel blog entry by lornathomas


... course was when we got to cuddle a baby koala, I've been looking forward to doing that since I got to Queensland (its illegal to hold koalas in other states)! After that I headed to the next hostel in the other side of the island where I met up with Sarah and a girl she met on her Whitsundays tour. After we checked in we met up and we went for a quick walk up before getting back for dinner and a few drinks with a little group of girls we met in the ...
