Having arrived in Brisbane realising that I've forgotten my driving license, I thought I would have to forgo my deposit at TMBB since there's no known public transportation to the mountain. Fortunately for us, I spotted the tiny ad in the copy of free map I've with me, and managed to book the coach service which provides daily shuttle from Gold Coast to the mountain for AUD20 each adult. To my greater relief, TMBB is also in their drop-off list of accommodations, hence we were sent right to their doorstep! Our family of 3 (including my son who's 22 months) arrived way before the official check-in timing, but Pam was so kind to receive us even when I had overlooked their "no children under 12" clause under their terms. Nonetheless, I was made to bear the consequence of my oversight when Zachary fell right into the icy cold water of their mini-fish pond; I was so pre-occupied taking close-up shots of the lovely flowers when his screams shattered the peace of the compund! Thank God Zac was unscathed apart from slightly traumatised and taking in a few gulps of the algae-rich pondwater since the depth was less than 3 feet... Despite how we have terrified the fishes, Pam was kind enough to offer a new set of towel since the 1st set was already soiled by our son. Their unparallelled hospitality was affirmed when we failed to reach any caterer that evening (not being aware that it was a local holiday then), Tony actually droved me personally to the Thai restaurant which is a distance away, to pack our dinner back!
Tony & Pam's warmth and hospitality is truly one of its kind that I've yet to experience anywhere else before... We will be back there again once Zachary becomes eligible ; )
