Fraser Island Four Wheel Bus Tour

charset=InvalidCharsetId


Fraser Island is a sand island and is a World Heritage-listed island. So the island is full of sandy roads, and we, like our tour group, have to take this kind of four-wheel drive bus to go to different scenic spots. And it’s very wobbly, so be sure to fasten your seat belt the entire time. If you have children, you must bring your own car seat.

During the Christmas period, I went to Fraser Island. But we chose to live in Hervey bay and just joined the one-day tour of Fraser Island. Because the island is full of mountain roads and dirt roads, not paved roads, you must drive a four-wheel drive, and I think it is safer to go with a tour group. Secondly, the choice of accommodation and restaurants on the island is very limited, and three meals a day should be done in the hotel where you live. In Hervey bay, you can choose high-end and mid-level hotels, or backpacker hostels. Food is also available, if you want to be more economical, you can choose McDonald’s and KFC

Big Pineapple Sunshine Coast


Australia likes to build some giant fruit landmarks, such as big mangoes, big bananas, and big pineapples. I recently traveled through the Sunshine coast, where there is also a big pineapple. It has decades of history, and many travel books have introduced it. More than ten years ago, if any friends came to visit us, we would take them to this big Pineapple. There is also a pineapple farm and a small train, as I remember.

But this time I went there and found that it was closed, and the pineapple farm and the small train were gone. Some signages said there will be some redevelopment plans. Fortunately, that giant Pineapple is still there. In fact, it is not too sad to see everything closed. I also entered the interior of Big Pineapple more than ten years ago, but there are some exhibition boards that introduce the history of the juice brand. It’s just a two or three stories high man-made fiberglass big pineapple. Taking a few photos outside is enough. If you pass by here, you can take a few pictures and spend more than 10 minutes.

Of course, there are also other scenic spots, such as a tree top Adventure Park, and a small zoo. Of course, we have to pay for it, but we didn’t enter it either.
We ended up spending ten minutes there taking a few photos and leaving.

Sunshine Plaza


Although the Sunshine coast is not as commercialized as the gold coast, Sunshine coast is a tourist area, and there are also some high-end residential areas, so there are large shopping malls. Sunshine Plaza is the largest in this area, it is comparable to the Pacific fair. Also myer and David, two big department stores, and there is h&m. Also, it’s comfortable to walk around, I think that is because the expansion was completed in 2019, so I think it’s new. On the day of the visit, I had a stop over during the trip to Hervey Bay, there will be aerial acrobatics.

Finally, there is a ropes course.

Area 51 is Australia's largest family entertainment centre
Area 51 is Australia’s largest family entertainment centre and it’s located right in Underwood. It’s very close to my house, and many of my friends have been there too. Because their business was really good when they first started, it is said that many settings require an hour-long queue. So I haven’t been there until a few weeks ago when there was a friend’s birthday party, and I had the opportunity to go.
Maybe it’s not too crowded because it’s been open for a while.
children's Main Playground,

In fact, I understand why I like it so much. First of all, there is mainly a three-layer children’s Main Playground, where there are slides and wave pools, which are suitable for children aged three to seven and are very popular.
trampoline area
There is also a trampoline area, where children can jump around, suitable for children over four years old. There are many other settings, including a two-story Sky Ropes, rock climbing, tennis courts, ice skating rink. The equipment is very complete. Of course there’s a zipline, which is a staple there.

More importantly, there are coffee shops and restaurants, where children can play and adults can drink coffee and have some free time.
As for the fee, it is not very expensive, the children’s rope net area is two hours, and if on Saturdays and Sundays, the children’s rope net array is $20 for 1 hour and $40 for 2 hours, and the more advanced rope net array is $25 and 2 hours for 1 hour. $40.

Since the epidemic began, it has been a long time since I left the city.

However, when I had the opportunity to visit the city earlier. I found a lot of changes here, such as a new coles local. Before, I have heard of this new Coles brand, mainly high-end and some local brands. This time, I have really had the opportunity to visit the one at Adelaide Street in person.


The storefront is bright and spacious, the furnishings of the goods are more stylish, and all the refrigerators have doors, giving people a clean feeling. However, the price of the goods seems to be similar to that of the other branches, but I can’t see the half-price specials. But there are some non-alcoholic gins that don’t seem to be found in other coles.

It’s the school holiday now. For Brisbane, it’s essential to take time off to go out with the children, otherwise, the children will be very bored. I took a day off today. I took the children to Southbank by bus, and there are many high-rise buildings in Southbank and Westend, which is entirely different from the style of Sunnybank, which is still a suburb, so it feels like going to oversea. Moreover, there are museums, art galleries, state libraries, and playgrounds. These facilities can definitely “discharge” the children’s energy.queensland museum

Earlier, the company invited a group of our colleagues to have a day trip to the O’Reilly winery. It was beautiful scenery, and it was possible to have close contact with the alpacas. We could take it and walk on the grass for half an hour. At the same time, you can also feed them food. They are so cute and very greedy. They will keep eating. Of course, if you put the feed close to your mouth, they will be crazy to eat on your hand, and sometimes they will not go because they want to eat grass, this is a few exciting experiences.
O’Reilly is an excellent eco-tourism area. They had hosted visitors around Lamington National Park almost a hundred years ago.

Hercules Street Park
Hercules Street Park is also a famous park in Brisbane because there is also a giant children’s playground. There are several different slides in the playground. Although it is not too high, it still has a special style, and there are also different climbing paths, which is really good. Therefore, there is also a perfect place for children to play hide and seek.

Like other well-known parks, there are also some places to water play, but this water plat area is a bit smaller, and there are only a few places where water jets are sprayed.

In addition, there is a large grass field where children can play ball.

At the same time, there are also some tables and chairs, where you can have a picnic, and some barbecue grills. However, the park is top-rated, so the facilities is highly demanded.
In the end, I don’t understand why such a popular park has only a few parking spots.
I believe everyone will like this park, especially children.

Red Cliffe can also be regarded as a tourist area. There are also beaches, “jetty,” water play areas on the seaside, and seafood to eat. It can compare with Gold Coast. However, it is not so commercial, and it is relatively calm.

It’s like I went to Settlement Cove a few days ago.

This is a typical Redcliffe tourist area. There is a sandy beach on the side, a jogging track, and the main feature, the Lagoon, where you can swim and feel at ease, don’t be afraid of sharks and jellyfish.

Moreover, there is a water play area. There is also a children’s playground, so it is suitable for our local tourists to come here peacefully and relax.
