    Day 2 - Coolangatta

    November 19, 2017 in Australia

    The forecast for today was mainly thunder storms so we weren't really sure whether to risk going out and having a repeat of our coastal walk in Noosa. Not wanting to spend the day inside though, armed with my raincoat, we decided to brave it. We walked along the coast to Coolangatta and then on to Snapper Rocks and Point Danger. Here you got great views out over the ocean where there were lots of surfers taking advantage of the stormy surf. We then walked back along Boundary Street to the State Border Monument which sits on the border of Queensland and New South Wales. The crazy thing here is that New South Wales is an hour ahead of Queensland so you can actually stand with each foot in a different time zone. My phone has been very confused since we arrived in Coolangatta and is constantly switching between Queensland time and New South Wales time, so we're never completely sure as to what the time is. We were getting pretty hungry by this point so we headed back to the apartment for some lunch on the balcony. Luckily it didn't rain at all however it did mean I had to carry my raincoat around with me for nothing!

    With more rain forecast for the afternoon, we weren't really sure what to do, so we decided to chill out for a couple of hours and watch some more of The Blacklist. We have now finished season one and have made a good start on season two. It didn't rain all afternoon so we thought we had better leave the house and go for a walk. This time we headed left along Kirra beach towards Tugan and then sat on the beach for a while, before walking back down the beach, dipping our toes in the sea.

    Gold Coast

    April 10 in Australia

    A new exciting chapter in the gap year is starting here at the Gold Coast. We arrived just in time for the Commonwealth Games, which was at first great news until we started looking for a place to stay at. Everything was either booked or exorbitantly expensive. In the end we were lucky to get a Airbnb close to the airport.
    The mission for the first few days was to find a car to get us around. Luckily we were already successful on the first day. We had a good feeling about it and so we went for it. Hopefully our gut feeling was right, but we'll see about that in a few weeks.
    As we now had a car we decided to treat ourselves with a ticket to the Commonwealth Games. There weren't many tickets available anymore but we got some cheaper ones for the Athletics. It was a fun experience unlike the football stadiums there is something going on everywhere all the time.

    Before leaving the Gold Coast in the general direction South, we visited Coolangatta and the iconic Point Danger. Named by Captain Cook because of the dangerous shallow rocks its now a scenic spot to watch the surfers and the sunset.

    Great Ocean Road

    July 5, 2017 in Australia

    Die Great Ocean Road, eine der beliebtesten Küstenstraßen Australiens,
    ist wohl so ziemlich jedem ein Begriff und für Reisende in Australien ein wahres must-do. Die circa 290km lange Strecke führt hauptsächlich direkt am Meer entlang, wodurch wir so gut wie ununterbrochen eine wundervolle Aussicht hatten! Hätten wir dazu noch mehr Sonnenschein als Regen gehabt, wäre es doch tatsächlich optimal gewesen. Unseren ersten Stopp machten wir bei dem Loch Ard Gorge, einer Schlucht zwischen einigen Kalksteinfelsen. Durch den Einsturz des Steinbogens Island Archway vor einigen Jahren befinden sich die Felsen seit dem in einer neuen Formatierung. Ein sehr sehenswerter Ort, der nicht ganz so touristisch ist, wie es unser nächstes Ziel war. Eine der bekanntesten Sehenswürdigkeiten Australiens sind die 12 Apostel, die sich direkt an der Great Ocean Road befinden. Zeitlich hatten wir unseren Besuch dorthin perfekt abgepasst: kein Regen mehr und pünktlich zum Sonnenuntergang! Die Aussicht auf die Kalksteinformationen, die sich direkt im Ozean befinden, und die riesige Klippenwand war unglaublich schön und einzigartig. Definitiv etwas, das man gesehen haben sollte! Nach einer Nacht in Princetown, dem wohl kleinsten Ort der Welt, ging es für uns am nächsten Morgen wieder zurück Richtung Melbourne, um von dort aus unseren Weiterflug nach Sydney anzutreten.Read more
