Noosa North Shore
Tin Can Bay
was a great party town, small but good. Grew up there.
I stayed in
for two and a half months as work was plentiful. If you want work you don't have to go through a hostel, just get up bright and early, say 5:30 am, and stand at the post office junction. Ask the farmers if they need help as no qualifications are ever asked. Tully and its environs have a lot to offer and I must say I had the best two and a half months ever.
is a safe town to walk and explore. Non-touristy and friendly locals.
The experiences I had in
are amazing. I wouldn't miss a day!
is a fantastic city! We loved our stay here. Brisbane was fabulous - South Bank (wow!) the river (wow) and great feel for a city. We saw some great AFl with the Brisbane Lions too!
is the most beautiful place I may have ever been on Earth! The main street has mountians on one side and a simple, untouched beach on the other! It is in "croc country", so no swimming, but the view is enough to fall in love with Cardwell!! There are cute cafes and wonderful locals. The local Catholic Church is still one of my favorites! Hitchinbrook Island is also another natural beauty in Cardwell. You can take a boat over on Sundays for half price. All in all, Cardwell is a must visit!
in March 2008 with the Cool Dingo Tours. They are a brilliant company to go with. I was traveling on my own but was made comfortable and made lots of friends. Fraser Island is beautiful and is well worth a visit.
For the three days I was in
I realized it's truly beautiful. I suggest that that everyone go snorkeling and/or scuba diving on the Great Barrier Reef.
is one of my favourite spots in Oz. My tip is to mingle with the locals and they will show you the best time ever coz they are the friendliest bunch of Ozzies I ever met.
is a good place for a stop over and to earn some cash on the fruit picking but hard ass work...
is a great little beach town. Its away from the hussle and bussle of other tourist areas so one can actually enjoy the place they are at.
is a great place to do fruit picking as it is so close to the beach, has lovely weather, plenty of charity shops, and great drinking holes!
is a wonderful place to relax and it has the most beautiful scenery.
I had a brilliant time in
. It's a place where you can go to get a real feel of Ozy life as there isn't a huge backpacker appeal. It's just a really nice town and I look forward to going back. Another bonus is that it is a base for the Oz army so there were plenty of fit young men around. This was way back in 2000 so hope not too much has changed!
Rainbox Beach was just too lovely to describe with any justice. Anybody who wants a little paradise should definitely go to
I've stayed in
twice, and really like the area.
Great Keppel Island
, wonderfull atmosphere, beautyful sea and white beaches, good to relax your mind with yoga and your body with some trackers or snorkeling or kayaking. The best in Australia in my opinion.
I have fantastic memories of
and would go back. I loved the hillbilly feel of the town. Beats the cities any day. Work is hard but well worth the experience.
… Cooberie Park is a must see.
… Oh my god, what a beautiful place this is. My girlfriend and I came here for a day trip and missed the ferry back to townsville. We rang a few hostels and after 2 days we went back to the main land to get the rest of our stuff and now we can't leave. It's been six weeks on the island at hideaway and I am getting sad just thinking of leaving, this place is truly magnetic.
