Our last night in Australia. Backpackers In Paradise, Gold Coast, Australia. Hey you! This will be our last post about Australia. We took a bus from Byron Bay to get here. The bus dropped us at Surfer’s Town & we had to walk about 10 minutes to reach our backpacker’s lodge. I must say, the rates are affordable. From AUD 19 per bed! I’ve attached Backpacker’s In Paradise’s website below for you to check this place out. It is about 10-15 minutes walk to the beach. It all depends on how fast you walk. These are some of the facilities available for you. Wifi is AUD5 perday.
So there you are, Australia. We will be back for more. Do drop us a comment if you want to know more.
