Bryon Bay

1 April 2011

A group of my friends had planned a weekend away in Byron Bay.

I needed a bit of time out, so I joined them for the night.

They were staying in a lovely 15 bed home, close to the bars and beach in Byron.

On Saturday avo we all just hung around the house and then went to Cheeky Monkeys that night.

Was good fun and nice to get away.

12 March 2011

Today I headed out with a group of friends to "Trev's Water Sports"

$20.00 for two hours and we got to try stand up paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking and water boat peddling.

It was great fun and stand up paddle boarding is something I have always wanted to try.

Brigid's Farewell

5 March 2011

Brigid is a friend of ours who has a really awesome job!

She manages a house in the Caribbean! She used to do it alone and now she job shares with her mum. She goes for three months and then comes back for three months.

Brigid lives in the apartments above The Grand so perfect location for a few drinks at her house and then down to the Grand for some dancing.

Brigid also used to work on super yachts, she said she would be able to help me out if I decide that I want to do that in the future ... woo hoo!

Me, Kelle, Amanda and Brigid

You will recall from a few posts again that my "friend" called me 32!! There was a labelling machine at the party and he made this label for me :)

Story Bridge Climb

26 February 2011

Today was the day of the R U UP 4 IT! Story Bridge Climb

From base headquarters at Kangaroo Point you make your way via a suspended walkway within the approach spans of the bridge to the halfway house. Your climb leader will enlighten you with extraordinary facts about the history and heritage of Brisbane and it’s iconic Story Bridge.

The route then ascends through the road level on to the anchor arm on the eastern side of the bridge. Here the incline is at its greatest as you make your way to the viewing platform approximately 80 metres above sea level. It’s from here that you will first experience the awe-inspiring 360 degree view of Brisbane, its river and surrounding mountain ranges.

From the eastern summit the route gradually descends along the eastern cantilever arm towards the central platform.

The central platform allows you to traverse the width of the bridge above the six lanes of traffic. Once on the western cantilever arm, climbers begin the gradual ascent to the western side, or city side of the viewing platform for another opportunity to take in the panorama.

The route continues down the western anchor arm of the bridge back through the road deck to the halfway house.

You then leave the halfway house and make your way south via the suspended walkway to base headquarters.


Upon getting to the place where we were to meet to climb we had to go through rigorous training and searches to make sure we didn't have anything on us that could be dangerous or could fall. They even had a metal detector!

We did a twilight climb so were able to see the views from the day and the night.

Was a fun climb and only a little bit tiring.

Glow Worms

19 February 2011

Today I headed out to see the Glow Worms at Mt Tamborine with my girly group.

The glow worm caves are in Cedar Creek and were artificially made in 2004

Cave construction took fourteen months finishing in mid 2004. We introduced our first 100 glow-worms,Arachnocampa flava, into the cave in February 2005. Once this colony established we opened our doors to the public on the 1st March, 2006.

Did you know after glow worms hatch from their cocoon things they don't have any mouths, therefore as an adult form they don't live for very long.

Some fun pictures

After the caves we decided to head a bit more into town to have some lunch and go cheese, beer, wine, chocolate and liquor tasting.

How big is this chip!!

I wish I was a glow worm,
A glow worm's never glum.
'Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!

Hi All
For this last year I have been somewhat lazy and not doing anything particularity exciting, so instead of writing blogs I might just adopt the easier approach of just posting some pictures and writing a few words about them.

Rockclimbing and Night at the Grand

11 January 2011

Today I headed up to Brisbane with a friend to go Rockclimbing. At Kangaroo point you can just grab your rockclimbing gear and have a go yourself.

My lovely friend Richard was experienced in rock climbing and gave us all a go.

I only managed to get one abseil in before it got dark and as this area was heavily affected by the floods the lights weren't working

After abseiling it was time to hit The Grand to catch up with the others for few drinks!!

15 January 2011

Today we decided to head to the races for some fun in the sun and to "frock" up.

Upon trying to get into the gate, I was accosted by the security guard and made to wear an "age" bracelet for the whole day to say I was over 18. However, the people at the bar didn't believe me or my "age" bracelet and made me show my ID again!

We had a fun day at the races, I even won some money by accident.

As a group, we won some money on the horses.. We ended up at Amber's with drinks and pizza's before heading to Broadbeach for some dancing.

Great day!
