- And A Happy New Year! -

We flew back to Brisbane and the following day made the trip down to the Gold Coast. Our plan was to find a place to stay, celebrate New years and then look for work in the area. HOWEVER.... on the drive down there the traffic was terrible, 4 lanes heading the same way, all at a stand still! It was certainly a shock for us and the prospects of looking for work in the area soon seemed like a crazy idea! We continued very slowly and after what seemed like forever we arrived in the high rise capital of Australia.

We pulled over at a quiet park to ring up a few places for somewhere to stay.. soon realising that every caravan park was booked out we opted for backpackers. Luckily finding one close to Surfers Paradise and the main strip. It wasn't the most appealing of backpackers however we made the most of it to enjoy New Years Eve.

We spent the arvo checking out the Coast, the countless surf shops and on our travels booked in for a Club Crawl for New Years Eve. It included VIP entry into 5 high end clubs, free welcome drink at each, All cover charges etc.

New Year's Eve day we headed out to the beach and then got prepared for the big night... All dressed up and ready to party we joined about 100 others In the Wicked Club Crawl. The clubs included Sin City, The Bedroom, CD's, Cocktails & Dreams and Players. When moving onto the next clubs we watched the streets continue to grow with crowds of people.. it was unbelievable!

Just before the clock struck midnight we walked with about 1500 others down onto the beach to watch the fireworks! It was a memorable night and a great way to see in 2010.
