Ciarán & Elaine's Travelog

Monday, October 02, 2006


It was time to leave Noosa and we were all lucky enough to escape hangovers so we piled the dutchies into the van and hit the road.

Our first stop for the day was Coolum Beach. We headed straight to the sea with our boogie boards again and all had some fun. It was the dutchies first time on them so it was funny for us to watch them falling off!

We then drove on a little more and had a picnic lunch in Maroochydore beside a river with pelicans swimming by. Its crazy how accustomed we have gotten to all these birds and animals we would never see at home. Seeing lorikeets, cockatoos, parrots, fruitbats and dolphins is almost becoming a daily occurrance!

After lunch we headed on to another surf beach at Mooloolaba for the rest of the afternoon. We got to Brisbane just as the sun was setting , dropped the dutchies off at their hostel and headed to our campsite - where we bumped into Chris & Karen, Sarah & Owen and Ellen & Graeme again! We just had an early night then because tomorrow there's the Rugby League Grand Final and that could be another big day!

Spent the next day sight seeing around Brisbane. It's a really nice city with a relaxed atmosphere, lots of cafe's etc. Then it was off to meet up with the gang to watch the NRL final, Brisbane Bronco's v Melbourne in Tin Billy's. Turned into a great night with major hangovers the next day! Had a lazy day and then went for a fab Mexican meal with Graham & Ellen.
