Time for an update!
When we arrived in Brisbane we went to the hostel where we had a free night through our bus ticket. When we got there we were pretty disappointed as it was quite dirty and it stank and the people in our dorm where not the best! They had been there a while and had taken over every square inch of space with all their stuff, there was barely room to put our bags down! We had booked in for week before we arrived beacuse with most hostels it is cheaper that way, so we were stuck with it for a few days. We usually got up early and left and came back as late as we could!
The first thing we did was get the train to Australia Zoo, we were excited like 5 year olds! It was brilliant! We got to touch so many of the animals. Our highlights were holding a koala, feeding the elephants, watching the croc show and just before we left we saw a wombat being taken for a walk, Andy spotted it and ran off as fast as he could without even saying what he was running away for! We got to stroke it which we had been wanting to do all day! The tigers were really good too! Andy purchased of very tacky souveneir!
The rest off the time in Brisbane we went over to the manmade beach, walked through the botanical gardens and then just spent the rest of the time in the pub moaning about how rubbish Brisbane was. Luckily we spotted an ad wanting strawberry pickers further up the coast, so we rang up and were able to leave the next day off to Maroochydore. we got refund from the hostel too for the nights we didnt stay there.
So far we both agree Brisbane is the worst place we have visited on our whole trip so far!
