The Hungry Caterpillar

Last night we stayed at Gold Coast Holiday Park as there are no free camps around the Gold Coast! It was fairly cheap though and facilities include kitchens, laundry room, hot tub, swimming pool and cafe. So we had a nice evening swim and enjoyed some hot showers!

Concrete Jungle 

We spent yesterday and today exploring the built up areas of the Goldcoast as we felt we’d had our fix of rainforest! 

We headed to Surfers Paradise yesterday, from the look of the skyline we were expecting a big Aussie version of New York.. instead we got a lot of apartment blocks and a very disappointing centre. But we still took some photos to show you guys:

Then we went to watch Burleigh King of the Hill, it started off with a kid crashing their car, and then there was torrential downpour but everyone was in good spirits!

Then today we went and bought some bedding and a few more bits and bobs we’d need to live out of the car

We then headed to a cafe for lunch and I only remembered to take a photo of my juice, so I’ll pop in another of our drinks from yesterday:

Then we had ice cream on the beach despite the strong winds! And headed to a mall to make up for the disappointment of yesterday and it was a huge American Style one so didn’t disappoint!

Tomorrow we head back towards Bundaberg as we have secured a place at a hostel there and some tomato picking work from Friday! 

We’ll keep you updated on our road trip.

Tamborine Mountain

After a pretty rubbish nights sleep we got ourselves ready for the day and headed to Tamborine Mountain. Here we did a walk through the rainforest, we did a sky walk through the rain forest and we went on a glow worm cave tour!

Unfortunately cameras and phones weren’t allowed in the cave so I wasn’t able to take a photo, but imagine you walked right into a galaxy, that’s pretty much the closest thing I can compare it to, it was breathtaking.

We stopped for lunch at a pizzeria and were thrilled when we found out it was owned by an Italian; the food was amazing. 

A bird did swoop down and steal some ham off the top of it but we tried not to let it ruin our meal. We also got some drinks that were made in Bundaberg!

I’ll attach a video of the rainforest photos as there are way too many for me to try and upload them all separately!
