Travelling the Coast of Australia

RAIN! RAIN! AND MORE RAIN!

rain 21 °C

Well, we have been in the land down under for 12 days now and it has "poured" with rain for 9 of the days.....it has been torrential rains, flooding and high winds..............we drove from Gosford to Surfer's Paradise in 11 hours, through the worst weather that Vic and I have seen....we had to pull off the road several times to wait the ain out to see the road...........there were between 200-300 mm of rain in 24 hours with winds over 120 kms per hour....roads were flooded over but we kept to the main highway (that they call the main road) we would call it a small 2 land country road with no shoulders!!!...................with speeds of 80-100kms per hr....some cars new nothing about the bad conditions and kept their speeds well over 100 +..................we made it to Surfer's Paradise, where the first day was beautiful, sunny true Australian weather....but only lasted one day then back to the rain..............we managed to visit a number of beaches, sights, restaurants, saw one of the funniest comedians ever at their local casino and Vic even found his "theme parks" - Warner Bros. Movieland and Seaworld.............which in the end were very good....!!! Stayed for one week here then drove south towards Port Macquarie..............which is about 3 hours north of Sydney and another adventure to behold.......check out the photos along the way.................
