I had a great time in Australia on my recent trip there. Even though I have been to Brisbane several times already, I still enjoy the central area round the river. We hired tandems and rode along the cycle pathways that follow the edge of the river... until our muscles started to hurt.
A few days later we drove up to the Sunshine Coast and stayed at Mooloolabah (in photo). I really enjoyed all the Aboriginal place names on that coast – we also visited Eumundi, Maroochydoore, Yandina to mention a few. The weather was perfect with temperatures of around 30 degrees C, which I find quite pleasant and this meant that swimming wasn’t too cold! We also had a trip on the river ferry up at Noosa, an afternoon wandering round the Australia Zoo (of Steve Irwin fame) and did lots of walking as well as plenty of shopping at various markets – a wonderful holiday all round.
