1770 & the Sunshine Coast

sunny 30 °C

The town of 1770 was cool and so chilled out, apparently it's the only town in the world with a number as a name but i'm not sure thats entirely acurate.

The Cool Banana's Hostel in town had a great vibe to it and spent the evenings chatting to people out under the stars with a huge fire close by.

Also one of the main reasons to visit the town is to try some of the dirt cheap activities in the area, I got together with some other from the hostel and joined as a big group for fun at the beach on a beginners surfing lesson.

After learning the basics and several hours of attempting to stand up and not fall off (wipeout) when the big waves came crashing forward I can proudly say that I'm not a great surfer yet and much more practice is needed.

Jumped on the Greyhound bus early monday morning and spent the rest of the day travelling back south along the coast to the posh and expensive resort town of Noosa Heads on the sunshine coast.

This is where all the Australian rich and famous have their holiday homes and come the retire in luxury.

It has a wonderfully small national park right next to the town and spent one day walking many km's along the coast and through the bush with Iguana's and other strange animals all in the undergrowth.

As I head further south now back to Brisbane and Byron Bay before catching a flight in a couple of days across to the west coast city of Perth, apparently the most remote city on the planet.

Hi Lee

I see we are both in 30 degree tempratures at the moment, Cape Town in South Africa is really hot, will tell you all about it when you get back....

Sounds like the surfing was fun, will have my first ride in a helicopter tomorrow! lol
