After Brisbane, Gabriela and I split up for a while as I met my friend Jenny in Mooloolabah to stay with her for a few days. She lives in Flaxton, near Montville, on the Sunshine Coast, which is about 30 minutes inland in the hinterlands. (the hills).
Kondalilla falls are just down the road from her house so we took a walk there, how great having a national park at the end of your road. We visited a lookout where you could see the Glasshouse Mountains in the distance, and then we drove to Montville which is small touristy town with lots of art and crafts shops and wandered around.
The next day we went to Eumondi market, a mix of australian and lots of countries food, clothes and crafts. In the afternoon we drove to Caloundra on the coast, which is really nice and took a walk by the beach.
It was really nice to stay at Jen's for a few days, it was peaceful and relaxing after the noisy hostels and shared dorms I have been used to. On the last night we lit the log fire, and had a glass of wine, which was really nice and cosy.
The next day I took the bus from Mooloolabah to Noosa.
