Cairns, Melbourne and Sydney

Sunday, 29 Jun 2008 | Views [475]

We reluctantly packed our bags and said goodbye to Vikki and Alison, our flatmates, then jumped in a taxi for the airport.   I think the flight to Melbourne took about 3 hours but can’t remember exactly.   We’ve taken so many flights now that I get ... Read more >

Around Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef

Sunday, 25 May 2008 | Views [833] | Comments [1]

We checked into the Koala in Cairns mid-afternoon, which was to be our home for the next four days.   It was a horrible feeling to have to pack our bags again and go back to living in a hostel. We were sorry to see the van go as it had begun to feel ... Read more >

 After returning from our Whitsunday sailing trip we spent another night in Airlie Beach then in the morning we set off for Townsville, about a 3 hour drive. Townsville is really just another city. We arrived early afternoon and spent the rest of the ... Read more >

We made our way down to the marina for 8.30 in the morning. We were shown to our boat, the Anaconda 2. Prior to becoming a tourist charter it had been a racing yacht made in the late 70s. Our skipper had been with the boat since the start and had even ... Read more >

Fraser Island

Saturday, 12 Apr 2008 | Views [2318]

We arrived in Hervey bay and checked into the YHA where you can camp.  A nice hostel that seemed quite luxary compared to what we'd become accustomed to.  We went for a walk into town and got completely drenched as it decided it to piss it down when ... Read more >

Noosa to Hervey Bay

So when I last wrote we were in Noosa.  In the morning we took a surfing lesson which was cool.  Not as hard as I expected it to be.  Jenn and I both managed to stand up straight away although the waves were pretty gentle.  I'm sure if there'd been a ... Read more >

Sydney to Noosa (about 90minutes North of Brisbane)

We picked up the van on Thursday and eventually found our way onto the highway out of Sydney.  We covered a fair few kilometres the first day, spending the night in a place called Port Macquarie.  In the morning we visited the town's Koala hospital.  ... Read more >

We flew from San Francisco to LA on the smallest commercial plane I've ever been on.  The 14 and 1/2 hour flight from LA to Sydney went pretty quick so was not the mind numbing affair I'd been preparing myself for.  We're staying in a hostel fairly close ... Read more >
