Since leaving Brisbane ive been to Surfers paradise on the Gold Coast and to Byron Bay. They were both great places. Surfers was really really hot, i think it was 40degrees most days. It kind of reminded me of spain with the high rise apartments along the sea front.
Byron Bay was really cool. it had an amazing beach, loads of cool surf shops and coffee shops and it was really hot there too! i Spent most of my time there on the beach playing rounders or looking around the shops. On one day when it wasnt quite nice enough to go to the beach we went a walk to the lighthouse. it was a long way, i think it took us nearly 3 hours!! it was a nice walk though and it took us to the most westerly point of australia. I also had a surf lesson in Byron. It was much easier than when i tried it in bondi. the waves were much smaller so i managed to stand up nearly eveytime i caught a wave :-)
Im back in Sydney now for my final week in Australia. Its wierd being back where it all started. Theres lots of things to do here which is good and im going the Kelly Clarkson concert next week!! woohoo!! Then its off to New zealand!!
