Sydney- Coolangatta: The Final Leg

Previous entry: Muttonbird Island, Coffs Harbour

Date: 5th June 2012

 

Before we left Coffs Harbour, this “fishy”  restaurant caught our eyes:

 

A quick drive through the main street of the coffs Harbour town:

 

Nice place:

 

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:

Almost sunset:

 

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.

 

THE END :)
