In the morning we got dropped off at the bus station. Waited for a bus and then waited a little bit more and then waited and waited, went to KFC to eat and waited again. I wrote my diary, read a newspaper and wandered in the shopping mall. And then we waited some more. Some people went to get some food and then the bus rolled in 6 hours later. There was a spillage from a tanker accident on the road, so all the roads were closed and they had to wait for the stuff to be cleaned up. We got into the bus and the driver was checking if everyone was onboard. Two girls were missing as they went to get something to eat. The guy didn't blink and left in two minutes. The girls must have been so upset - getting up early, waiting for 6 hours and having to go back to the hostel only to start everything again in the morning and to pay for the ticket again. Ouch!
The Noosa town was very tidy with lots of nice bars and restaurants. Our hostel was on the top of the hill and we walked there with our bags. I was ready to give up, but we made it to the hostel. They wanted to put us in the room with 5 guys, but I've managed to negotiate with receptionist and we ended up with two girls that were very nice.
We did our laundry and it was bliss to have clean clothes. We when cooked dinner and crashed into bed. It was enough adventure for one day.
The next day we wandered around the town and basically lay on the beach the whole day, the best beach so far in Oz that you can actually use to swim - it was great, Noosa is a cool little place. In the evening we used some electric BBQ's along the the river overlooking the expensive river front houses .
