Mount Tambourine

On our way from Brisbane to the Gold Coast we made a detour to the Tambourine National Park. There awaited us a few waterfalls and nice views. We started with the Cedar Creek Falls:

Judging from Inka’s look she might be a bit fed up with all the waterfalls we visit. 😉 Continuing to Mt Tambourine (the town itself) we found a great view over the western landscape inwards:

A walk to the Witches Falls proved being worth not even a single photo to show you – sorry. But enjoy this shot of the Curtis Falls instead where we went afterwards:

Returning to the coast we at least wanted to take a quick look at Surfers Paradise, pretty much the northern start of the Gold Coast – where the sun always shines! Technically Southport is the starting point, but it’s hard to differentiate where exactly you are anyway. The various towns with glorious names like Miami or Mermaid Waters have transformed into a single stretch along the Gold Coast down to Palm Beach. We went to the beach at Surfers Paradise and experienced the sunset there:

Apart from that there was not much keeping us in this hotel-laden, busy and touristy place. We reached our next base in Palm Beach where we stayed with an elderly couple we had met on the Eyre Peninsula 4.5 months ago! Back then we had agreed to give them a call once we reach the area. Now they had invited us to stay with them and we were happy to take on the offer. Isn’t travelling great? 🙂
