  1. thanks, aine. western australia is another world from the east coast — glad you enjoyed it!

  2. long and drawn out it is not. An enjoyable read, and from what I’ve heard, seems to be a somewhat accurate description of traveling through some places on the east coat – I’ve not had the pleasure. I decided to spend most of my two years in Australia in WA, and glad I did, although running down Cavill Avenue towards the Gold Coast’s infamous 57-kilometer beach in flats does sound like fun!

  3. hey jay,

    thanks for commenting. i wrote this ages ago as an assignment for matadoru. i didn’t ‘go to surfers paradise only to bitch about everything’ — i went for the sake of going, and this is an honest account of how i felt about that place, at that time.


  4. sounds like you hate areas of mass tourism, wildlife, and even people so why go to surfers paradise only to bitch about everything? count yourself lucky you were able to go in the first place!
