Day 24 of Australia Adventure Noosa Brisbane then Surfers Paradise, Australia – May 9th 2010
This morning we are up and ready to get going again. No breakfast this morning as we are heading into town to Noosa and spend a few hours to check out this very rich place.
Noosa is a wealthy town, with real estate being extremely high here, at in the millions for a basic house. I head out on my own for a while this morning and walk around in the town. Then make it down to the beach area and walk the huge beach area. A very amazing area and the beach is quite amazing.
One can see people surfing in the distance and lots of waves everywhere.
I go walking from end of the beach to the other and explore the upper hills areas till it was time to head back to the bus.
Get back onto the bus and head towards our way to the city of Brisbane, but first a stop before then. We stop at a wine making place that used to be a morgue. It is called “the Little Morgue” and its quite neat as there are old coffins inside and a skeleton on a piano. We are served cheese,crackers and sample the many types of wines here. I like wine but am not a fan of Australian wine. The red wines tasted like cough medicine, so therefore I will never have wine again here.
From here we make it into the city of Brisbane and only have 2 and half hours to enjoy it. We get off the bus and many others go waste their time in some Opal shop.
I head out and try to see as much of the city as possible. I go to the other side of the river and walk in this old town section and take photos of the many bridges here.
I have a quick lunch from the local Subway of roast beef and pickles, to which is good. Then more walking around. I go across into downtown Brisbane and check out the Parliament buildings and the botanical gardens area. As well this great big pedestrian mall, that has nice statues nearby. I run out of time and make it back to the bus so we can make our way down to Surfers Paradise!
On ward for a few hours to get to Surfers Paradise, we arrive at nice hotel and check in quickly and get to our rooms, nice hotel has a nice balcony, wish we could stay here.
This evening we get a free drink in the hotel and plan out the evening. Then a bunch of us make it into the town and have dinner at some hotel – restaurant. Order a fish and chips and some beer for dinner, which is quite good. Then off back to the hotel to get ready for this evening.
Later that evening we all walk down to a nightclub that we get free entrance to and a free drink as well. It is called SinCity, once inside it is good place, but ok. Have 2 drinks as it got very busy and ended up being a sausage festival. After a few hours called it a night and make it back to the hotel. During our walk back, get to watch Lucy dance on the street all drunk, too funny.
