After some chilled out time in Brisbane I was back on the road again and the next stop was a small town called Noosa.
I got to my dorm and met a Dutch girl called Lieke. Lieke was on a break from her studies and decided to come away traveling. Hey why not!
The hostel we stayed at was pretty cool as they gave us welcome drinks and dinner vouchers. So we had wine and nachos.
I was going to go to Australia Zoo the next day and Lieke decided to join me - we hadn't booked our bus shuttle tickets to the zoo and were told to turn up to the bus stop in the morning and that we would need to be very lucky to get a spare seats.
We arrived nice and early at the bus stop but turns out we weren't the only ones trying to get spare seats. It was simple I just made sure as soon as the bus driver opened the door that I was the first person he saw, gave him a big smile and explained that we hadn't pre-booked a ticket. We were asked to wait at the side whilst he checked on the pre-booked people and then when he did have a spare couple of seats because we had lured him in at the start they were given to us!
Success we were off to Australia Zoo. It was about an hours ride to the zoo so we got watch lots of Steve Irwin docs on the way.
We found out that Terrie Irwin and kids were going to be doing the crocodile show at midday. So we made sure that we hit the show....
The next day Lieke, I and two other girls we had met decided to do the trek walk. It took us a good 3hours but I'm quite addicted to doing the trail walks in each town.
In the morning it was rainy and cold but the weather flipped to full on sunshine so I was dressed way out....
After the walk I left the girls and headed into the town to grab some lunch and take a look inside the shops. Noosa is an expensive little town, I found a gorgeous pair of sandals in the sale but was out of luck as they had sold out of my size!
After Noosa it was a 5hour ride up to Rainbow beach as here I would head out for camping on Frazer Island.
