so we jumped on the coach to tully which was only about half hour from mission beach!! we arrived in this town which is classed as the wettist place in the whole of australia!! we got off the coach and it was like going back in time to some sort of western!!! the town is very old and tired and everyone drove old pick ups... it was a bit weird!!! but needless to say we had a job here so would have to put up with it.... we finally found the hostel after 20 minutes of looking for the street and walking the wrong way... we walked in and the hostel was very run down and just looked quite shit to be honest.. we met the landlady jude who i had spoke to and said there were jobs... so we payed for a weeks accomodation and then she showed us round the hostel!!! we were all looking at each other thinking wtf have we done!!! then when we asked about the work she said she doesnt actually have any but if we go down to the post office at 5am every morning you can ask the farmers and maybe they will have some..... needless to say they didnt and we were stuck in this shithole for a week... we went back to the room sat down and decided we not gonna stay here we will get the next coach and go to townsville and ask for our money back... when i remembered that the rules stated NO REFUNDS!!! so we kindly spoke to jude and asked but she said NO REFUNDS!!! so we were just gonna have to grin and bare it for a week!!! but we couldnt... this place was nasty... so we stayed for 3 nights then booked ourselves the coach and a nice little hostel in townsville and headed down there...
