MEL AND ZOE ON THE MOVE
Our purpose for going to Brisbane was to apply for our visas, which will allow us o travel in Thailand for longer than 30 days. The weather was really clammy in Brisbane, infact we have had some volatile weather due to a cyclone which it further up the coast. To be honest there wasn't a grea deal for backpackers to do in the city, so we planned to head up the coast asap, after booking a ticket to Dream World- a theme park just south of Brisbane. It had the worlds tallest vertical fall it took 4 seconds to drop 39 stories! After 3 nights in Brisbane we headed to Hervey Bay- the gateway to Fraser Island, renouned amongst backpacker's for its 4x4 safari and camping trips. We stayed a week in Hervey, and i am ashamed to say we must have been the only people who hadnt paid for the package trips to the island, however we had an awesome time and met a few pretty cool people there. Our hostel had a pool and was literally a stones throw to the beach! Shame the weather wasn't beter but we have caught some sun!
