The bus from Brisbane took 2 and 1/2 hours to arrive at Moloolaba, a small town on the Sunshine Coast. Moloolaba was actually bigger than I expected and had a really nice beach. Quiet a quiet place. The backpacker hostel where we stayed was not very nice. The kitchen and bathroom was dirty and the floors was all seperated up and had our own balcony, which I didn't like as it wasn't very sociable, and you only got to know the people on your floor. The pool was a bit fusty too. We lived off dominos pizza and noodle boxes for two days as if put us off cooking in the disgusting kitchen. Probably the worst place we have stayed in Oz so far. Used the days to get a couple of early nights in, to ensure we had lots of energy for Noosa!
