Happy Australia Day everyone! After a pretty chilled out day doing a spot of shopping and getting to know our fellow hostel guests, Rikki and I headed down to the bay to watch the Australia Day fireworks. It was absolutely choc-a-block down there. For some reason I thought it would be quite empty. I was wrong. The fireworks were really impressive, lasting about 30 minutes and with some pretty sequences. Everyone particularly liked the koala and kangaroo ones! I thought it was a bit strange there was no music to go with it but maybe that's just me? The Aussies were lapping it up so I guess that's all that matters.

After the fireworks we headed to the bar/club that is just at the end if our road. It was a really cool atmosphere inside and really laid back. They even had a dance floor outside which I don't think I've ever seen in England before! They played a load of contemporary music and we even got a blast of lady Gaga so Rikki was in his element!

Tomorrow we leave Perth and head to Alice Springs A.K.A the hottest place on earth it seems...wish us luck!
