Coast line of Australia

I had been living in Japan for just over 3 years and this was my 4th time to return to Australia to visit family.  This time was to return and marry my fiancee.

We departed Japan and took the 8 hour flight from Narita airport to Brisbane Airport in Queensland Australia which is approximately 1 hour drive from Gold Coast my hometown. We had to wait for 5 hours to board our plane. So we went to the observation deck at Narita Airport and had a few beers while waiting.

However upon meeting my parents they decided we were going to head further North to visit my Aunt (My dad's sister) who owns a resort on the Sunshine coast at Noosa Heads.  OH NO... a 2 hour drive after an 8 hour flight.

Well I gotta say it was worth it the Sunshine Coast is great so much to see and do and the weather is so warm year round.

We made a few stops along the way but the first stop was the Ettamongah Pub located about 82 Km from Brisbane and is a suburb of the Sunshine coast.

A bit further on we passed Mooloolaba which has some of the best beaches ever. We made a lunch stop here and then continued on to my Aunts resort.

We reached my Aunts Resort by early afternoon so we decided to take the boat out on the river for a bit of a sightseeing tour.

We had dinner that night at the local resturant.
