Got to surfers at lunchtime and got a shuttle to the yha on main beach. It was in a really good location on this swanky marina with one of the most exclusive shopping centres opposite and the only versace hotel in the world!
On tuesday we went into the centre and had a look round the many shops and as the weather was so nice at last we thought we would take advantage of the beach, however we sat for about 10 mins before the heavens opened and we had a thunderstorm, better luck next time!!
The beach was a lot bigger than byron but the wind was getting up and whipping the sand up so that gave us a free exfoliating session! Difference to byrons chilled outness is that surfers is full of high rise tourist blocks and theme parks/attractions for holidaymakers so it was all a bit too touristy.
As we left on wednesday another duststorm was beginning to come in, the third in 3 weeks when queensland never usually gets duststorms.
