Australia Travel Diary part 5: Brisbane & Surfer’s Paradise


25th August

The last few days have been pretty eventful and LOTS of fun!

After Noosa, we visited Brisbane for a few hours. From what I saw of it, Brisbane seemed really nice. I would’ve liked to have seen more of it and spend more time there. As our next stop is Surfer’s Paradise, which is a big party place, I definitely needed better clothes, so used my time in Brisbane to shop! I bought a new top ready for Saturday night!

So, we’ve been in Surfer’s Paradise for the last 2 nights. It’s a proper party town, so was very busy. It’s quite built up as well. Everyone was excited for Saturday night. This is the first place for a while that we stayed more than 1 night and we haven’t had a proper night out since Cairns. Lots of alcohol was consumed and we obviously had pre-drinks at someones room.I think I was hammered before we even went out! Whilst we were waiting for the taxi, I befriended the hotel manager and was asking him for a job. He loved me!


The first stop was an Irish bar. I met a Welsh boy and was talking to him for ages! I dragged him to the club with me where I met up with the rest of the group. The club was packed! I didn’t really like it, but lots of men to talk to. I lost the Welsh boy pretty quickly! I ended up stopping out ridiculously late! Didn’t go to bed til 5 and then had to be at the bus stop fot 7.20!!! Who’s idea was it to go to Australia Zoo? Oh yeah! Mine! An optional trip I chose to do! Stupid decision! Getting up was horrendous! I think I was still drunk! My friend was also sick on the bus. The bus driver was quite sympathetic the first time, but when she did it again, he looked like he wanted to kill her!


Anyway, the zoo was actually good. I was just too hanging to appreciate it! The drive was far too loooooonnnggg though! I was ready to go by midday because I was so tired. Saw all the animals… koalas, kangaroos, crocodiles, zebras, giraffes, cassowaries…. was good!

Had a pretty chilled night tonight. Literally just had food and went straight to bed!

I’ve also discovered a huge bruise on my calf but I have no idea how I got it! It’s quite painful so I must have knocked it quite hard! Oops!
