Queensland Part 2 - Exploring.

While in Queensland we enjoyed exploring Surfers Paradise, and doing some shopping at the large shopping centers and eating out at the many amazing restaurants. 






Our little hire car was perfect for getting us all around, and we almost always made a stop at 7 eleven on the way back to our resort in the afternoons for a Slurpee! (We don't have 7 eleven's here, so it was a real treat!)



We also took a day trip to Byron Bay while on holiday, I had spent a fair bit of time here when I was younger, and I was excited to show the family around. The lighthouse was our first stop, then Byron Fresh for some Brunch before we did a bit of shopping and wondered the beach.












Another day we visited Ripleys Believe It Or Not in Surfers Paradise, as we were given tickets for Christmas, it was fantastic, and the whole family enjoyed it, we spent a good three hours here, and could easily have spent more.


Near our resort was the 'Sling Shot' and Poppy and Tom had been eyeing it off for the first few days, so one afternoon we had time to wander over and check it out, Poppy was very keen, so Tom and her had a turn, it was so crazy and 'slung' them 80 meters in the air!



Another morning we booked to have a tour via the 'Aquaduck" a great bus that drives on land and then right into the water for a tour around Surfers Paradise.


It was a great way to have a look around, and all the kids even got to have a turn at driving the duck.





We sure fitting plenty into our short holiday. With our last two days being spend at theme parks, I'll share them in my next blog, when I get the chance.

At the moment it is a rainy Friday afternoon, all the children are tired from a big school week and the weather is making all all feel a bit glum. The perfect time for us to look back on photos and talk about our hot Queensland holiday!

Until next time... Happy Friday xx
