Day 19 - Frazer island

Day 19 - Frazer island

We woke up at 7am in order to have breakfast and be at 8am in the bus – we were not late this time! In fact, the annoying point in the tour was a tight schedule to see things with a very strict timing. We went straight to the lake MacKenzie, which is a damp of pure raining water with a bottom made of 98.5% silica sand, which means that the sand w
Day 21 - Quicksilver surf championship

Day 21 - Quicksilver surf championship

We left at 1.30pm for the Quicksilver surf championship at Tweed Head, close to Gold Coast. The competition was not on at the time but there were some good surfers (one even swam with a dolphin). Then we went shopping and left for Nimbin. We were surprised to see that the town was so high in the mountains. We searched for one hour in the dark the l
Day 20 - Brisbane

Day 20 - Brisbane

Packed up everything straight after waking up at 7am, left at 7.30am and went to the port to approach the dolphins very near. We took a shower in the public amenities, cleaned the car and hit the road for the glass house, which is a set of lava residues alike mountains. The formation of those mountains peaking in a champaign is due to the total ero
Day 26 - Canberra

Day 26 - Canberra

We woke up at 11am and drove to the next town to get petrol (we were not sure to make it – I calculated afterwards that we probably had 4L left). We wanted to head back straight to Melbourne with a stop at Canberra (Australia's capital, not Sydney). Canberra is very peaceful but not as pretty than I expected. I was also a bit deceived by the mode
Fukuoka - Cherry blossom

Fukuoka - Cherry blossom

Picnic in the park next to Nozomi's house. Several families were enjoying the cherry blossoms. It was a peaceful moment.
Day 24 - Nelson bay

Day 24 - Nelson bay

We woke up at 11am, packed up rapidly after breakfast and crossed the forest to the beach, where we met a fisherman and its dog. We hit back the road to Woolongong, 100kms south of Sydney, and stopped to high sand dunes close to Anna bay (Nelson bay) and arrived at 11pm, where we met Nozomi's friend.
Day 23 - Kempsey

Day 23 - Kempsey

We woke up with the sound of the music, very nice. We drove towards Sydney (300kms) and stopped by a national park close to Kempsey. We were surrounded by some kind of tropical trees and found enough wood to make a big fire and cooked a fish on it. We went to bed at 3am. Almost got it on my face at night
Day 22 - Nimbin

Day 22 - Nimbin

We should have checked out at 10am but were quite tired and decided to stay another night in order to enjoy peacefully the day in this artistic hippy town which attracted more tourists than I thought, even though most of the inhabitants looked truly hippy, a bit in another dimension. Indeed, at Nimbin's museum it really smelled pot and people were
Fukuoka - Atago shrine

Fukuoka - Atago shrine

Got the licence at JAF. We went to the atago shrine to see the view of the city and enjoy the cherry blossoms.
Day 25 - Jervis bay

Day 25 - Jervis bay

We left her place at 3.30pm and we drove to Jervis bay, which took us 2hrs. Once there we faced an entry of the national park where the employee told us that there was no available camp site left. We decided not to stay at Jervis Bay but just had a look at Hyams Beach, renowned for its whitest sand in the world. We tried to camp at the next nationa
