I'm very happy that you liked my TR so far! So let's continue traveling around Australia and have a look at one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen in my entire life: GARIE BEACH! Whenever you are in Australia you HAVE TO go to Garie Beach and do the cliff walk there! It is absolutely STUNNING and something you don't experience every day! Since my friend lives in Australia he knows all these places and I was able to get to know REAL Australian culture and life. It was awesome!
So, when you parked your car at Garie Beach, the first thing you need to do is walking along the beach before you climb up the rocks to be on top of the world, LITERALLY! It looks like a crazy hiking thing, but honestly said it isn't. Take your time and walk up all the rocks that function like stairs. Don't look back while going up, because the view is so beautiful that you should wait until you're on the top. From there you can walk through bushes before you get to the cliffs that are RIGHT next to the ocean. If you're not careful, you can fall down! I'm sure it happened before though! However, the walk is awesome and being in nature is an incredible feeling. The beauty of nature is still in our world, just a long travel away, no just kidding. There are many places in our world that look incredible. Since I mostly travel for coasters, this was an absolutely fantastic experience that I will never forget! We even got to see some animals along our way! Don't freak out like me, because it's just a normal thing out there! When we got to the cliffs we had lunch next to the ocean, which was again AWESOME! You can get great photos up there, so don't forget you camera. The walk takes around an hour to an hour and a half each way. There are no toilets or anything like that up there and be sure to have enough food and water with you!
I hope you enjoy the awesomeness of Australian beaches and I can't wait to show you the rest of my adventure!
Somewhere in the middle of nowhere!
Look at this beach!
Is this real?
Sure we are in Australia? Looks like Africa though!
Ooopps! Hopefully no crazy animals out there!
That's how the walk up to the cliffs looked like!
This view is stunning!
There's the ocean!
That's where we came from!
Hey Garie Beach!
Those bushes looked weird!
If you have an enemy, throw them in that bush!
Where's the ocean?
Ah, there it is!
What does this remember you of?
YAAAAS my friend the ocean!
My name is Marcel, the Jungle expert!
There it is!
I heart Australia!
Hey guys! Up in the air!
I just love this view!
HELP ME! I'm scared!
Yup, we saw some animals!
This one scared me because it was suddenly there!
Good sign! We made it back!
Don't leave me here!

Another day, another Australia update from me, Marcel the shell!
I hope I'm not boring you with all the landscape photos, but I promise you that there will be some roller coasters soon! I just think that Australia has to be presented with many beach photos, since their beaches are so beautiful!
One of my favorite beaches is Manly beach! The waves there are incredible! I will never forget the day at Manly, because there was a minor incident that day! I just say SHARKNADO! We got right out of the water and were going back to our place when we heard a siren. Lifeguards were telling people to get immediately out of the water because they had spotted a shark! I have never seen people going out of the water so quickly! It's a very great job the lifeguards did there. I also haven't experienced any shark evacuation or anything similar, so this was really one of these things that I can cross from my bucket list! Experienced it, never need to experience it again! Manly Beach is way more touristy, but in a positive way! The atmosphere is just amazing! I can highly recommend going to Moo burgers at Manly Beach. It's one of these Aussie burger chains that serve kind of healthy and good quality burgers! Their restaurant is on the first level and their patio is facing the ocean side, so you'll have a great view during lunch! Just stunning and delish! We also had some ice cream at Gelatissimo, which is so yummy! It's expensive (what isn't in Australia), but well worth it and you don't it eat every day!
So, put on some swim shorts, your Ray Bans, turn on the heater in your room and feel a little bit like an Aussie when watching my photos!
Welcome to Sydney!

I'm SCARED! Does this mean I need to be rescued by a...
FINALLY some coaster photos are coming! This time I'm reporting about my time at Movie World, Gold Coast Australia! My friend and me drove from Sydney to Surfers Paradise at the Gold Coast, which takes you about 10 hours. It was nice to discover Australia on the road! We stayed at Chateau Beachside Resort, which was right next to the beach. The view from our apartment was incredible and we didn't pay a fortune for it. With regards to theme park admission prices, I can highly recommend getting both the VIP Magic Pass, which gets you access to Movie World, Wet n' Wild and Sea World ($109,99 AUD) and the Dreamworld Holiday World Pass for Dreamworld and Skypoint in Surfers Paradise ($89,99 AUD). They are worth it since you can easily park hop between the parks during your stay there! Single park admission is quite expensive there (around $80-90 AUD). Keep also in mind, that you have to get a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo at every park except for Dreamworld. Australia has even crazier loose article policies than most of the parks in America. They even make you show your pockets at Superman at Movie World. This is also why I haven't gotten many photos at these parks, but still tried to get some after we rode everything.
The Australian parks are very small, but it's nice to see how they tried to run at least some parks over there. I don't understand why they don't have more theme parks and roller coasters, because Australia is one of the main tourist destinations and they would make lots of money I think. However, don't expect too much when going there. I wouldn't travel to Australia to just ride coasters. That's not worth the money.
My favorite ride was Superman the escape at Movie World. It's such a fun ride and Intamin of course! We got Fast Pass ($60 AUD), because it was quite busy. They only sell a certain amount of them per day, so that there is still a fast pass guaranteed!
With that being said, enjoy the first day at the Gold Coast and have fun riding coasters!
Driving to the Gold Coast! Wait, the weather doesn't look very nice!
We made it! The weather is really not that great!
The view from our apartment! But I want to ride coasters! So let's go!
