Darwin

Darwin

Darwin, the city named after the great man himself, Charles. I had high expectations of the town which I was quickly informed should be lowered.   I hadn’t done much research as what was to do in Darwin. The reason I was there was to catch a flight, but seeing as I had 3 days…

The Outback

The Outback

The Outback,  this stage of my adventure took me from Cairns all the way to Darwin with one particular point in the middle which I was aiming for, Alice Springs. The issue was how I got there.   I had many suggestions thrown my way, and quite a considerable amount of time spent trying to…

Cairns

Cairns

Cairns had a big significance on this trip for several reasons. This would be Vanessa’s last stop on her trip. It would also be the last destination where the package deal we had bought would also be ending. From that point on I would have to arrange EVERYTHING myself, from activities to the hostels, no…

Whitsunday’s

Whitsunday’s

Yet another part of the trip I knew almost nothing about was Whitsundays. All I knew was what Vanessa had told me about it, that we’d be spending 2 days on a boat. Initially I wasn’t too sure about it, being stuck on a boat in shark infested waters for 2 days, probably in shitty…

Rainbow Beach & Fraser Island

Rainbow Beach & Fraser Island

Rainbow Beach itself I can’t really be described as a town, considering the main strip consists of roughly 10 shops, most of which sell your usual beach resort tat of towels and bodyboards etc. The coincidently named “Dingo’s” hostel seemed to be the main attraction of the town. Our purpose for visiting Rainbow Beach was…

Brisbane

Brisbane

A couple of hours on the bus and I found myself on the very brief 1 day stop at Brisbane where I met back up with Vanessa.   Being that I literally had 1 day in the city, it didn’t give me a lot of time to play with, I essentially had to pick one…

Surfer’s Paradise

Just like in Byron Bay, I knew pretty much nothing about Surfer’s Paradise, only what the name suggested, and I wasn’t intending on Surfing.   Our plans had changed slightly. Vanessa hadn’t really enjoyed her time at Byron (which after the drama’s of the hostel move and the tepee in the middle of the rainforest…

Byron Bay

Byron Bay

Byron Bay was the first stop on my travels up the East Coast that I was truly clueless about. Before heading out to Australia I’d never heard of it, didn’t know of any landmarks or what the hell there was to do there. It also received the worst possible start.   Where on the last…

Sydney

Sydney

Probably safe to say that by far the most famous city in all of Australia has to be Sydney, considering that most people actually think it’s the capital.To be honest, my time in Sydney didn’t start off the best way possible. Firstly I’d have to catch a 12 hour bus journey from Melbourne. Don’t get…

Melbourne

Melbourne

First stop on this epic journey, after arriving at 11pm and catching less than 6 hours sleep, the first day began in Melbourne!   Admittedly, me and my cousin Vanessa quite clearly hadnt gotten our heads in the game yet. Stepping out onto the streets of Melbourne with a free mini guide with absolutely no…
