Introduction to Queensland

 
 
Queensland is the premiere tourist destination in Australia. To be more specific it's that famous stretch of pristine beach that tourists flock to. None other than the Gold Coast.

Queensland was the first leg of our trip with Sydney being the second. We took a train from Melbourne to Surfers Paradise (bypassing Sydney, where we actually stopped for a few hours to catch the connecting train).

The trip was murderous. We spent over 24 hours on a train arriving at about 11pm where we wasted no time in checking into our hotel, the Iluka (pronounced i-luka, not e-luka). Needless to say, we headed staight to bed as we had to get up early tomorrow morning for the Sunshine Coast tour.
