Now onto the Fraser Island 2night 3day trip. Honestly the best thing I've done in Australia so far. I met some amazing people and was in...

The hostel was good and the stuff was friendly and. The 3d2n tour with bertto as a Leaddriver was amazing. He did a good job, was friendly and very funny. Even though I wasn't allowed to drive the tour was very good.

First of all if your a backpacker like me Dingos is literally at the greyhound bus stop. It couldn't be more convenient. The hostel amenities are up to date, cool and clean (The kitchen must be one of the cleanest hostel kitchens I've came across this far). We only stayed one night but were able to borrow body boards to...

We stayed only for 1 night. It was a very clean hostel but there were a lot of downfalls For example the kitchen closed at 1pm for cleaning which is lunch time for most people so inconvenient to clean. The kitchen is so small and not well equipped at all. it's almost impossible to move in it to get to...
