St. Patrick’s Day in Hervey Bay

BACK-FLIPS AND GUINNESS SOAKED LIPS

Returning from Fraser Island

We returned to Palace Hostel after our 3-day, 2-night tag along tour to Fraser Island (see, Staying Dingo Safe) where we unpacked the car and got showered and ‘de-sanded’. It was nearing dark and even though I was pretty tired, it was my last night in Hervey Bay and I wanted to catch a sunset, so quickly headed out to the bay.

After dinner, we all got dressed and ready for a night out in Hervey Bay and a post-Fraser tour outing for St. Patrick’s Day. We headed for an Irish pub close by where we consumed several pints of Guinness, Irish ciders and other drinks on offer (at a staggering $9 each). Both Vicky and Viktor sang with helium induce high-pitched voices. We drank and danced, Jenny did ‘the worm’, Viktor showed off his crazy dance moves and did a back-flip on the dance floor and when everyone eventually left the bar, we all left plastered in temporary tattoos and free St. Patrick’s Day themed headgear; a great way to end off an unforgettable trip with amazing people.

A morning spent in Harvey Bay

Whilst waiting for my 5:45pm, overnight bus to Airlie beach, I spent the day in Hervey bay. I went for a walk along the beachfront in the extreme heat of the day. I didn’t last long before stopping for lunch in an air-conditioned Japanese restaurant for some Dim Sum. I soon headed back to the hostel desperate to escape the heat of the day until catching by overnight, freezing cold bus to Airlie Beach.
