      Noosa Heads -Tag 3

      December 29, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

      Heute hat es den ganzen Tag geregnet. Auch in der Nacht sind wir gefühlt 1000 Mal wegen dem Regen aufgewacht…😅 Nebst dem Regen gibt es auf unserem Bauernhof Camping viele wilde Tiere und dementsprechend sehr viele unbekannte Geräusche.

      Das war sehr ein gemütlicher Tag mit Lesen, Einkaufen und Bolognese kochen.
      Ach und ich habe wieder Kängurus gesehen. Pädi musste dann anhalten, ich stieg aus und machte Fotos. Es schien den Kängurus nicht so zu gefallen. Als ich ausstieg bewegten sie sich keinen Zentimeter mehr…
      Wir freuen uns auf die Sonne😍

      Schon wieder ein Riesenrad aufgebaut

      July 25, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

      After one month it was time to pull down the ferris wheel in Tweed Heads and move it around 200km north to Coolum Beach at the Sunshine Coast. Pull down worked out very well and after two days it was packed away. After a day travelling up the coast the bad weather with storm and a lot of rain hit us. We had to pause for a day, lost two trucks and one crane in the mud but we made it in time to reopen the wheel one week after we closed in Tweed Heads. Good news: the wheel will now stay here until the 1st November.

      Nach einem Monat war die Zeit von unserem zweiten Riesenrad in Tweed Heads an der Gold Coast schon wieder vorbei. Für mich ging es also wieder ins kalte Queensland. Innerhalb von einer Woche mussten wir das Riesenrad abbauen, 200km gen Norden zur Sunshine Coast transportieren und wieder aufbauen. Der Abbau ging super schnell sodass wir schon nach knapp zwei Tagen alles in die LKWs verladen hatten. Die Probleme kamen dann allerdings in Coolum Beach als wir plötzlich mitten in einem Unwetter waren. Durch den vielen Regen sind zunächst unsere zwei LKWs und am nächsten Tag auch der Kran im Matsch stecken geblieben. Die Folgen waren eine Zwangspause von 1,5 Tagen bis das Unwetter vorbei war und der Kran befreit war. Trotz der Probleme ging es danach zügig weiter sodass wir den Zeitplan noch einhalten konnten und lediglich ein paar Stunden zu spät am Montag Nachmittag eröffnen konnten. Hier bleibt das Riesenrad jetzt erstmal bis zum 1. November stehen, weshalb es für schnell wieder zurück nach Hause ins warme Darwin ging.

      Coolum Beach

      December 5, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

      We had been told that, by the time we turned up at the campsite, the staff may have left as they were packing up early. After a lovely drive from Noosa to Coolum Bay we arrived and the office was open, but they were just leaving. The campsite was pretty empty and we’d been given pitch 108a. Not sure where there would be the need for “a”, but we set off to find it.

      Pitch 108a is small, very small. It’s the only pitch we have seen that makes vehicles park parallel rather than perpendicular to the road. When parked there wasn’t room to open the awning. We went back to the office and caught a member of staff just as they were getting into their car. I was expecting to be told to use another pitch if we were unhappy with where we were, but no, that was our pitch and she wasn’t going to go back into the office and change it, she drove off.

      We don’t usually get the awning out so the pitch wasn’t a problem, more the principle of having so many full sized pitches and giving us a substandard pitch. We went for a walk onto the beach ... very long beach.

      It was our last night so we went out for dinner.

      The next morning we went for a longer walk along the beach. There were lots of people swimming and surfing. Grandparents had their grandchildren who were loving the sea. The lifeguards were just putting up the flags. It was lovely to walk paddling along in the sea, it was 07:58 and 34C, it was going to get hot today.

      37. + 38. Tag Sunshine Coast

      September 12, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 21 °C

      Welcome to the Sunny Coast! Nach einer wundervollen Woche an der Gold Coast geht es für uns jetzt wieder nördlich.
      An der Sunshine Coast machten wir uns direkt am Strand an einem der öffentlichen Barbecues erstmal ein leckeres Mittagessen. Wir waren am Mooloolaba Beach, Noosa Heads, und surften am Coolum Beach. Unsere Surf-skills werden immer besser 🤙🏽.
      Auf Pauls Empfehlung mussten wir natürlich noch die Big Pineapple anschauen. 😂

      Tag 43 Coolum

      May 23, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      Der Husten von Patrik hat auch seine Vorteile... er liefert uns jeden Morgen die schönsten Fotos von Sonnenaufgängen.
      Gegen Mittag ging es zum Wandern in den Nationalpark. Was wir da sehen konnten, ist unmöglich in Worte zu fassen. Einen Koalalabären in live zu sehen löst pures Glücksgefühl aus. Wir konnten unser Glück kaum fassen. Als wir dieses Geschöpf ansahen kamen einem fast die Tränen.Read more

      Bye Sydney, Hello Sunshine Coast

      January 12, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 79 °F

      Day 7
      After checking out and putting my luggage in storage, Alix and I jumped on the train to The Grounds of Alexandria to grab an early lunch. The grounds is a beautiful garden like venue that has different places to eat within it. It was a great place to visit and the perfect way to end an amazing week in Sydney. We then headed back to the hostel where I hung out for a bit and then got the train to the airport for my 6:15pm flight to Brisbane. Once I landed in Brisbane I got a shuttle up to Peregian Springs to visit my friend Zarli for several days (who I met on a group tour in Greece back in 2015) at her parent’s house. Everyone has been asking me if I am near the fires in Australia and what is happening with them. When I landed I couldn’t see anything from the plane until a minute before landing due to the smoke, it was actually really sad. During my first week in Australia I didn’t hear anyone talking about the fires (bush fires in Australia are common), I haven't been watching the news while being here so not sure how much coverage it was getting but I didn’t really hear anyone talking about them. There were fires in the Blue Mountains (somewhere that I planned on visiting because I heard the national park there is beautiful but due to the fires decided not to) which is a region a little less than an hour from Sydney. Throughout my week in Sydney there were definitely days that the smoke was in the air and it was gray out but those days were nothing compared to my last day in Sydney. I walked out of the hostel and I felt like I was sitting next to a campfire, you could literally smell the smoke in the air and it was pouring out. It got a little better as the day went on but it really put into perspective the reality of what was happening with the fires in Australia.

      Day 8
      Hello Sunshine Coast, if only the weather was fitting to the name, the forecast for the days I was visiting wasn’t very sunny. Today was a day full of nature, after brekkie on the patio we packed our bags to head out for the day. Our first stop was Kondalilla National Park, about a 45 minute drive from Peregian Springs, where Zarli couldn’t wait to show me the beautiful waterfalls there. Unfortunately, due to lack of rain, this thundering waterfall was a pathetic little trickle of water but the walk and views were worth the trip either way. We then headed over to Mapleton Falls National Park which had a really beautiful lookout even on the cloudy day that we had. We stopped in a town called Montville where we grabbed lunch and spent an hour walking around and window shopping. Now that we were full, we headed to Mary Cairncross Scenic Reserve because I kept saying I really wanted to see some wild kangaroos and Zarli has seen pademelons (which are very similar to a kangaroo but smaller) on that walk in the past. As we were walking through we saw many pademelons hopping across the paths and even some that were mating in the bushes, they were everywhere (they are somewhat skittish so you couldn’t get too close). The one thing that we didn’t expect to see on our walk was the giant python (who had just eaten something) slithering across the path. Zarli has lived in Australia her whole life and has only seen snakes in the wild once or twice, and she has done this particular walk numerous times. Needless to say we were both high key freaking out, especially since we didn’t see it at first and could have stepped on it. What made us notice it was the pademelon who was lingering on the path even though we were walking towards it. As we got closer we saw three pademelons circling the python and stomping the ground; we think they may have been leading the snake off the path this way. It was very strange but cool to see animals in their natural habitat. After this encounter, every noise Zarli and I heard we were scared it was a snake. I am so glad Zarli was able to show me the walks that she loves so much and showing me a side of Australia that would have been difficult without a car. The sun goes down pretty early in the sunshine coast, so we headed to the river with a bottle of wine and a pizza in hopes of seeing a sunset but due to the overcast skies we had no luck. We headed back to Zarli’s to pack our bags to head to Bryon Bay in the morning for a couple of nights.

      Sunshine Coast

      December 28, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

      Die Fahrt führte uns wieder zurück an die Küste, wo uns die pure 🌞 und Temperaturen vom 30C morgens um 10am empfangen haben. So fuhren wir an der Küste " Sunshine Coast" hoch.
      Als wir den Strand sahen, musste ich rechts abbiegen😜😂
      An diesem machten wir einen Spaziergang im Sand an der Küste nach.

      Tag 42 Noosa

      May 22, 2018 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 16 °C

      Einen Start in den Tag mit Kaffe und Sonne. Schöner kann man nicht in den Tag starten. Wobei bereits schon um 6 Uhr morgens meine Nerven getestet wurden. Patrik hat seit fast einer Woche einen nervigen Husten. D.h., dass wir alle betroffenen sind🤨. Wer mich kennt, weiss wie schnell ich genervt sein kann, wenn jemand meinen Schlaf durch husten raubt😡. Aber keine Angst... unsere Beziehung wird auch diese Krise überstehen 😂😂.
      Wir haben den Tag in Noosa am Strand verbracht und uns die Villen in der nobel Gegend bewundert.

      Tag 44 Coolum Bay

      May 24, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

      Den heutigen Tag verbrachten wir zuerst mit Sport und Schule. Anschliessend haben wir ein Surfboard gemietet und uns in die Wellen gestürzt. Es war zwar wie immer ein Krampf, aber hat schon ganz gut geklappt. Patrik gab wie immer alles. Was nun deutlich zu sehen ist. Er kann kaum mehr laufen weil er sich den Zehen verstaucht hat. Typisch🙈😂.
      Dafür muss ich neidlos anerkennen, dass er beim heutigen 10km Lauf besser war als ich💪🏻👍(da war der Zehen auch noch ok)!
      Da wir keine Fotos gemacht haben, gibt es ein paar von unserem Camperleben.

      Spending money day!

      October 4, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      We arrived at 8am - lovely warm day. Our plan was to conquer DFO today, and it’s safe to say, this was achieved. After spending all our money, we headed to Mooloolaba to catch up with Lynne, Miles and Nannie. Nathan and Carolyn popped in as well - she still has the moon boot on. Everyone is super relaxed about the wedding.Read more
