    Wasn't expecting much but it was clean, tidy and a nice place to be. The kitchen was well equipped with plenty of fridge space, cookers and even free spices and oil to use. The lounge area was great, had loads of board games and DVDs, plus a BBQ outside. The star couldn't have been more helpful from getting a personal tour and then shown to my room to the drop-offs at the bus station when I left, all in all a great 3 nights spent here, I would definitely recommend!

    This place is absolutely disgusting and feels quite unsafe. I would never stay there again.

    Auf dem Weg zu meinem nächsten Ziel habe ich einen kleinen Aussichtspunkt auf einem Berg (Mount Inkerman) angesteuert. Dieser Berg steht eigentlich mitten im Nichts (selbst mit dem Auto da rauf ist es kein Spaß), dennoch befindet sich dort ein Picknick-Platz mit Grill. Es fällt auf, das nicht mehr alles so bewaldet ist.

    Soaking wet we boarded the bus to Townsville. We arrived to beautiful sunshine but blustry winds. A nice stroll down Flinders street, filled with bars we headed for The Strand. A long walk along the coastline to the lagoon at the end. Wind swept was a slight understatement. A chilled out evening researching South America …

    So much walking, Mark nearly divorced me

    Today, we decided to explore Townsville, which seemed like such a good idea at first.... Townsville is a fairly large town, with a few areas worth visiting, that are dotted around with a fairly distance between them. So we set off at about half 10 and headed through town and out to the marina, which was beautiful, and along here for a mile or so. …

    My first full day in Townsville began well, with the news that I'd been reserved a place at a working hostel in Ayr, just 1 hour south of Townsville! The job is mango picking/packing I believe & should help me work towards my 2nd year visa, although I'm not counting my chickens just yet as having a bed reserved doesn't guarantee me a job! I decided …

    Nach meiner doch ziemlich enttäuschenden Zeit in Innisfail war ich jetzt endlich wieder unterwegs! Ein unglaubliches Gefühl von Freiheit erfasste mich. Zum ersten Mal seit meiner Ankunft in Sydney war ich wirklich alleine! Und das bedeutete, dass ich machen konnte, was immer ich wollte: Aufstehen, wann ich will, Essen was ich will, wann ich will, …
