Some Good News in Newcastle

Wednesday 20th to Thursday 21st April 2011 – Newcastle, Australia
Being back in Newcastle was really pleasing for me today. I awoke late after a much-needed lay in, and felt very content to be in one of my favourite places. All I could think about was going to the beach, but I had a job to do today, and this had to be priority.

Travelling Back to Sunny Newcastle

Tuesday 19th April 2011 – Newcastle, Australia
I was excited about the prospect of going back to Newcastle, a place I was very fond of first time around. The trip to Newcastle involved many stages, and it wasn’t going to go without hitch, but it was another journey I will not forget in a while.

LA Rumba on the streets of Melbourne

Saturday 16th to Monday 18th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
I awoke this morning with the familiar feeling of being slightly low on funds. Travelling around Australia up until now has not exactly been cheap, although I have seen and experienced many wonderful things. The recent boost to my wallet came from selling my car back home, but even this money was rapidly escaping me. Once again I needed a plan, and I hoped Melbourne would give me all the answers.

Job Hunting and Exploring in Melbourne City

Monday 11th to Friday 15th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne was a place I had come to in search for work, and currently I was in a hostel I didn’t like in a location far from where I needed to be. I needed to relocate before job hunting could begin, and that essentially is what this next week would be all about.

Sightseeing Melbourne in a Day of Changeable Weather

Sunday 10th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
From north to south, from Cairns to Melbourne, and from sunshine to rain, I was in Melbourne now and the change in temperature was a shock to the system. I was here in this beautiful city and wanted to get out and about and take it all in. Today’s agenda was all about the sightseeing.

The Good, the Bad and the Outrageous – My Trip from North to South

Saturday 9th April 2011 – Melbourne, Australia
I had spoken to a lot of people these past couple of weeks about the availability of work, and where I might find it. A number of these people spoke of Melbourne in a fond way, explaining there is ample work in the city for those that want it. I wanted, so I made a decision – however rash – to fly south to the city and prey for work to be available.

Getting to Know Airlie Beach

Thursday 7th to Friday 8th April 2011 – Airlie Beach, Australia
The next couple of days in Airlie Beach were all about exploring and coming to like this place, for all its flaws. Airlie Beach is a very beautiful place, surrounded by picturesque backdrops and sea views, and I wanted to take it all in.

Wednesday 6th April 2011 – Airlie Beach, Australia
With Townsville and Magnetic Island ticked off my to-do list, I had no reason to stick around in this hostel. My onward trip was booked for today and I was looking forward to meeting up with friends in Airlie Beach.

Returning to Townsville After Fun on Magnetic Island

Tuesday 5th April 2011 – Townsville, Australia
My few days on Magnetic Island had come to an end today, and I was headed back to the mainland, back to the hostel of hell that is Adventurer’s Backpackers. It was very hot today and I wished I had another day here on the island, but it was all pre-booked and I had to leave.

Magnetic Island Wildlife Tour and the Rock Wallabies

Monday 4th April 2011 – Magnetic Island, Australia
I had another eventful day ahead of me today on Magnetic Island. The weather was better and was a chance for me to see the place differently than yesterday during the persistent rain. I had no real plans as I awoke in the morning, only that I would be visiting the wildlife park and taking a tour. I had to survive the morning first though.
