Long flight to Surfers Paradise

After a long flight over the Pacific Ocean, we finally arrived in Brisbane, Queensland. We grabbed our rental car and headed an hour down the beach to Surfers Paradise.

City view of Surfers Paradise from our hotel. Tons of shopping down there.

Tomorrow we’re taking a small charter flight  to Lady Elliot Island at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef. WiFi is hit or miss so we’ll update when we can. Instagram is easier, so be sure to check out the feed to the right from a desktop or below on a mobile device for our most up-to-date pics.
