View Supermoon on KulaRing's travel map.

With still a final blog post for Sydney to come this may be a bit premature, but we are sat at the airport to leave and this one needs now upload of photos!

Favourite town/city
Rob – Fraser Island, closely followed by Ayers Rock
Sarah – Byron Bay or Sydney

Worst town/city
Rob – Port Fairy, it rained and there wasn’t much to do in the rain
Sarah – Brisbane, because I saw so little

Best accommodation
Rob – Denison Boutique Hotel in Rockhampton
Sarah – Tropic Days in Cairns, still by far the best “hostel” I’ve ever stayed in. But excellent marks to Russell Hotel in Sydney for location and Kingfisher Bay on Fraser Island for the views.

Worst accommodation
Rob – Powerplay Catamaran – liked the cabin but not the 1 minute showers, and the people sleeping in the “living room”
Sarah – Baronnet Apartments in Gold Coast. Lovely accommodation, but shocking management. Accused us of deliberately flooding the apartment so we could get them to mop it up when our washing machine broke.

Best Australia Experience
Rob – Sounds of Silence (Uluru/Ayers Rock)
Sarah – Phillip Island Penguin Parade

Experience most regret missing due to lack of time
Rob – driving through the Red Centre or visit the west coast
Sarah – seeing Brisbane, need a lot longer than one night. Canyoning in the Blue Mountains is another, we had the time but not the knees

Best Australia meal/restaurant
Rob – Colonial Tram Restaurant
Sarah – Koi Dessert Bar in Sydney

Most quirky Australia behaviour
Rob – the obsession with Botanical Gardens, every village, town or city has one
Sarah – the Free Julian Assange campaign in all the female public toilets in the small seaside town of Lorne. Odd place to start a political movement

Favourite mode of transport in Australia
Rob – 4wd bus on Fraser Island
Sarah – campervan

Best thing about Australia
Rob – cultural differences across the whole country. Like many countries in one
Sarah – sunshine!!!!!

Worst thing about Australia
Rob – lack of driving skills, particularly the undertaking
Sarah – absolutely shocking wifi in many places
