Oh I love Australia! I really think i should have been born there ;) And I always wonder why we left there 15 years ago to come back and live in New Zealand. Oh well. I can visit 1-2 times a year and get the best of both worlds!
We got out of the Gold Coast (as lovely as the sunshine and beaches are and hey the traffic isn't even a problem, the skyscrappers and touristy junk are really not my thing). Still giggling over what constitutes clothing in some parts of town!
We drove the inner route inland to see the real Australia - I don't feel pressured driving anywhere there - they are a lot stricter with rules/speed limits etc I think!
We came across the border from Queensland into New South Wales in the middle of some forest...
