We spent a day exploring the beautiful and scenic Blue Mountains National Park

The Scenic Rim

We headed south east towards our next destination, stopping at Boonah, Lake Moogerah and Warwick along the way.

We took the opportunity to visit Palm Beach, in the northern suburbs of Sydney – otherwise known as ‘Summer Bay’, used in the filming of popular Aussie soap opera, Home & Away

Wallangarra

By mid March 2014, it was time to move on again, and we headed back to the coast – southward bound for the next part of the adventure!

Stanthorpe

We arrived in Stanthorpe, the coolest region in the state, and found work picking tomatoes at one of the local farms for a couple of weeks. During our time there we attended the annual Apple & Grape Harvest Festival and spent a day at Girraween National Park.

Final Days in Surfers

After 3 months on the Gold Coast, we finally left at the end of February 2014. On our last morning, the Gold Coast Bulletin published our first ever newspaper article!  Take a look at our News Section and read the full story!
