Before we left Coffs Harbour, this “fishy” restaurant caught our eyes:
A quick drive through the main street of the coffs Harbour town:
Soon it was a very long drive to Coolangatta.
A large Sikh temple (in Woolgoolga, I think) greeted us:
More frequent than not, monstrous vehicles like this one (road train) would overtake us:
Sugar cane plantation in northern NSW:
This was taken at a simple washroom stop:
Yeah, Byron Bay, but we didn’t have the time for a detour. Next time, maybe…
Coolangatta is about 100km south of Brisbane, hence we were about 60km away from our destination (and the sun was going lower and lower):
More sugarcane feasted our eyes:
Soon we found ourselves in Coolangatta. We spared no time looking for this familiar sight (we were here in 2008, en route to Kiwiland) :
Adana’s ,the authentic Turkish cuisine:
Ordering our late (but satisfying) lunch of Turkish kebabs:
Contact number for those interested to know where to get halal kebab in Coolangatta:
Gold coast, in the horizon:
We returned the car at Coolangatta Airport and waited for our flight back to Sydney:
We were rather early, and were offered an earlier flight back to Sydney, which we accepted.
We arrived in Sydney a couple of hours earlier than expected. Unfortunately we were caught in a heavy thunderstorm that we were stranded on the tarmac for about an hour!! Planes could not fly out, so our plane could not berth at the designated gate .
When we finally managed to get out, and get our luggage, it was pretty late. We checked in into a nearby hotel and very early the following morning we flew back to Malaysia.
