Surfers Paradise - We arrived into Surfers Paradise late afternoon and got a lift to our hostel which was quite far away from the city and didn't look very nice. Our friends Lucy and Lottie were already there and told us to stay in there room for the night, so we quickly moved our bags out of the hostel and trekked into the city where we snuck into there hostel! We decided we wanted to have a chilled night so we went a played crazy golf which was hilarious and really fun! This made us rather hungry so we went to the beachfront and had delicious pasta whilst watching a street performer, it felt like we were in Covent Garden! We all got an early night ready for Dreamworld the next day. We were up early on the bus to go to Dreamworld which is a theme park,water park and a zoo. We had a great fun day going on lots of rollercoasters and waterslides. We also got to hold a baby koala bear! The day completely tired us out and even though everyone was out celebrating St Patricks Day we just couldn't face it!
Brisbane - We arrived into Brisbane at 7pm, and went straight to our hostel where yet again we found they had messed up our booking so with a bit of complaining we were very lucky to get upgraded to an apartment! We took advantage of this and did a huge wash of everything and cooked supper in our room! With our washing hanging up all over the room we all disappeared to our double beds and slept amazingly! The next day we took a train to South Bank where we had arranged to meet Helen. She took us up to the Botanical Gardens where we spent a lot of the afternoon walking around which was really nice. We then went back to there house and Jon arrived home from work. It was great to see them again and tell them all about our travels. Whilst Helen was cooking dinner there son Justin arrived home so we got to chat to him. We had a delicious roast lamb and fruit tart for pudding. After they very kindly drove us back to our hostel where we slept very well after our big supper!
Noosa - It wasn't great weather in Noosa and there wasn't much to do so on our first night we went to the cinema with Lucy and Lottie to watch Wizard of Oz. Noosa was very humid and like a rainforest compared to everywhere else we have been in Australia. The next day the weather was a bit better so we went to the beach to sunbathe, had a yummy lunch and then treated ourselves and got our nails done. In the afternoon we met up with Sophie and Katie, had supper and in the evening we went to the bar. We had a really great time with some of the people we met in our room.
