Flew from Auckland back to Brisbane, stayed here for few nights and enjoyed the nice weather and beautiful city.
Headed up the coast to Hervey Bay where got pretty sun burnt! There is a long pier here which gives an amazing view of the beaches.
Next stop was Childers Eco Lodge. This hostel only opened around 4-5 months ago and therefore had pretty new beds, kitchen equipment etc. This hostel is based a little out of the main backpacker route and therefore did not even have flushing toilets, which is an experience that I wish I could say I am not getting use to! They also had chickens walking around all the time and a cow that kept getting out of the field and quite few times put its head into the cabin like rooms…funny as!
Whilst at Childers went to see the baby turtles hatch on the beach and pull themselves along to the sea. This was such a cool experience. It is after sunset therefore not a lot of light but enough for few pictures and videos!!
Went to 1770/Agnes Water for few days. Chilled out in the 16 acres of land that the hostel has to offer and also went down to the beach. Nice little town here but time to move on wards and upwards, well north anyway!
