It constitutes of one road where there are shops only on one side, there are 3 cafes, one surf shop, a bakery and a couple of fishing shops!funfunfun. However the beach is beautiful, there are massive sand dunes behind it and is gorgeous. So we have spend our last few days sunning on the beach to try and get a tan, then for the other hours in the day we have spent them eating!There is one restaurant where we ahve spent all our time in, the menu is huuuge and has indian, chinese, italien, american and loads of other types of food, i have had a curry there a burger and a pizza ooh and panckes and milkshakes.So as you can imagine the tummy is growing!ops. im hoping the new fat will fall off when i go to vietnam as the food there is all steamed and full of vegetables!mmmm.We are off to Hervy Bay today and staying there for 1 night as then it will be my BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!!and we are going to Fraser Island tomorrow which is one of the biggest sand islands in the world.We are doing a 3day 2 night self drive tour where 10 of us will drive a jeep round the island and camp!there are loads of beautiful freshwater lakes on the island which sound amazing, its gona be ace.

Helloooooooooooo, right, i ahve saved 10 minutes for a speedy update.Sydney ended well,went for a lovely meal with Nicki at an Irish pub!yum yum then boared the coach the next day where we met our friends to be-mole, chops and tits!(dan, mark and tom!)We cruised the highway with a truck obsessed driver called Forest.We then went to surf camp where we had an awesome party on the beach then had to wake up at 5 in the moring to ahve brekkie and start our surf lesson and oh my god it was sooo cool! I actually managed to stand up more than once!!!! woooo. The sun was shining and it was so much fun, swallowed waaay too much salt water but what the hek!After we got on the coach again and ended up in Byron Bay in the Rain!!!!!Not good, luckily for the guys we were sharing a room with them! we were obviously the quietest and neatest room mates they could possibly have, lucky things! Byron bay was oh so wet for the 5 nights we were staying there, and because it was a beach town there wasnt a huuuge lot to do. We attempted boady boarding but the sea and currents there were sooo strong we were too scared to even go deeper then our knees, the rain then started again so to the supermarket we went to stock up on some food and pig out in our room listening to music. It was also really good as me befriended this couple who were living in an apartment in the complex and they had a tv so we watched many films with them.
Since arriving in Sydney we had heard many stories of a bar called Cheeky Monkeys in Byron Bay, nicki loved it and so did many, however when we saw it it looked awful, cheap and really tacky, we swore we would only go there once, fuunily enough we ended up there everynight!!!!!hahaha. There was a coyote ugly night, and each night envolved lots of games which encouraged nudity, this guy even tryed to persuade us to enter a wet tee-shirt competition.....we declined!The only reason we ened up there was that it was literally accross the road from us, we could see it from our dorm window.Saying all this, we actually had loads and loads of fun there.
After 5 nights at Byron and tons and tons of rain we boarded the oz bus which took us to Brisbane, we got there at 7 at night, got ready and then proceded to drink Brisbane dry of its beer!it was the last night we were gonna see the guys so we had to make it a good one, the last thing i remembered that night was saying goodbye to mole at the club then the next moment i was being woken up by my phone ringing, i though it was my alarm so tryed to press snooze as i wanted to test it out, as my mind slowly woke up i realised that my phone wasnt ringing for the alarm but someone was trying to get hold of me, i looked at the time, it read 6.36am, the coach we were meant to be getting was at 6.30am!!!!!!!!!!nooooooooo. i jumped off the top bunk and shook hannah(who can i say is the worst person when it comes to sleeping, she just does not wake up!)i thought that maybe i didnt change my phone time and that maybe it was all a mistake and that it was still only 3 in the morning.I decided to ring rach(who was staying ina different hostel) and she informed me that they were ALL on the coach and leaving!!!! but thankfully the driver was gonna come back for us if we were ready in 10 minutes. i shouted at hannah to wake up and we both manically packed while being in hysterical laughter at whats idiots we were!thankfully we made it, after running up a steep hill with our huuuge rucksacks on. I think the alcohol hadnt worn off from the night before so we were still rather drunk so we found it oh so funny!
We are now in Noosa where it is hot hot hot, just visited the national park of Noosa and we saw a KOALA!!!!!! wooo, was sooooo cute, we aare staying in this really cheap place out of town where we have our own APARTMENT!!!!! for only 10 pounds a night!!! double woooo. Off to Raindow beach tomorrow then to Fraser Island for my BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
hope all is well for all of you.

I am in Sydney at the mo, today we are having a relaxing day, emotions are high so a break from it all was needed. Trying to sort out my pictured but just buggered it up and ahve nearly lost them all!!!!! fingers crossed i havent, eeek!Sydney has been really fun though, we are staying at this really cool hostel called the Pink House, its like a really big house witha kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms.Im trying to think what we ahve done here in sydney, its mainly been walking around, exploring the city. We went on this really cool mega fast boat ride around Sydney Harbour which was ace, we got soaked but the views were amazing, we went right out to the sea, we got it only for $20 instead of $55!!!what a bargin!Syndey opera house and the harbour bridge are cool but the opera house isnt as big as i thought it would be, still rather spectacular though.We have also had a couple of really fun nights out. There is this bar near our hostel called the World Bar and they do tea pots of shots!We also get loads of free beer as we are members of the Pink House.The first night in Sydney we went there and Rhianna, Carly our new found friend Sam and I did kareoke!!!!was sooo fun, after we stumbled back to our hostel and stayed up to the wee hours of the moring answering trivial pursuit questions, i learnt a lot!The other day was the best day so far, we got up early and got the bus to Coogee beach where we had a scrummy lunch, ice coffee then sunbathed on the beach for a bit as it was hot hot hot, we then did the coastal walk from Coogee to Bondi beach, the views were spectacular, the weather was lovely and we had sucha laugh, we all got a bit burnt though!!!! oh well. Nicki is down at the mo which is amazing, so surreal to see her but so fun, hopefully gonna go out on the town tonight for our last night out as our coach is at 6.10am on monday!! wooo.
miss you all.
email me, would love to know whats happeneing back in england!

Its our last day in Melbourne today, but its defo time to move on, our flight to sydney is at 6.30 in the morning so we need to get up at 3!! gonna be a bit of a mish but i guess thats what travelling is all about.Yesturday we went to this beach about 30 mins outside of Melbourne called St Kilda, the weather is getting hotter here so was really nice to have an ice lolly in the sun! It was bloody windy though so no sunbathing for us yet. We then went for a Chinese in the evening, god i felt pregnant afterwards, we ate sooo much but it was yummy, loads of the chinese restaurants had live lobsters that people could pick to eat but we passed on that one, We then wet to this really cool cocktail bar called Polly's which Hannah's sister reccommended to us. They were pricey but the bar was amazing, kinda burlesque and gothic and we sat in these huuge leather armchairs, we looked rather out of place, us scruffy back packers but what the hek!Today we went shopping and bought some more clothes as we LOVE carrying a heavy backpack, i needed to kit myslef out with some more tops, i dont want to get all smelly. Right need to shoot off and upload some piccys, I hope you are all doing well at home, I heard its snowing heavy, you lucky things. i'll message some more when i get to Sydney, Love to you all, miss you xxxxxxxxxxx
