Morning on The Last Day of Our Travel to Australia



The travel to Australia was far better than I had anticipated before.

Weather couldn't be better, being able to see amazing wild lives, friendly people, nice food ...

We brought back priceless memory, beautiful photo data I had taken and souvenirs.

Even having no plan yet, I can't  wait for the next trip to somewhere.

Downtown Art Work in Australia


Graffiti in Gold Coast downtown area are artistic and elaborately painted.
It's too good to just pass through those sidewalks.


The wood statue was placed on the sidewalk in front of a private gallery facing tram rails.

Wild Lizard, Wild Wallaby and Alpacas in an Australian Farm

This lizard lives in a forest of Tamborine Mountain national park.


Wild wallabies can be seen here and there on driving off city areas. I took pictures of them on our way from Gold Coast to Tamborine Mountain.



Those alpacas in the farm are bred for their fiber and also for tourist attraction.

Alpaca fiber is said to be used for making knitted and woven items, similar to wool.

The shop near the farm sells knitted blankets, sweaters, hats, gloves and scarves.

The shop also sells food for alpacas.

Top Season of the Schoolies Week in Australia

Australian have a tradition of high-school graduates having week-long holidays following the end of their final exams in late November and early December.

They call it Schoolies Week.  It is said that the Gold Coast is home to the nation's largest schoolies celebration destinations.
We went to Australia just in the season of Schoolies Week.

So, there were a lot of young boys and girls in the Gold Coast.

I don't know why but the number of girls in the town was far bigger than that of boys.
