Say hello to your new bloggers at the Woolshed backpackers – Maja and Andy! We traveled up and down the east coast until we found Hervey bay and decided to stay around for a while 🙂
Our personal little paradise – the AWESOME beach – is just a five minute walk from the hostel. As you can see it´s nowhere near as crowded as the guidebook-beaches you´ve probably already visited – if lucky, you have it all to yourself!
Hervey bay is a tropical little pearl and a gateway to Fraser Island, with a 16 km (!) long beach, heaps of flying foxes and wild kangaroos hanging out on the fields next door. The waters are perfect for kayaking or SUP-yoga and there´s even a little reef just outside the beach.
And who are we?
Maja (that´s me!) is a journalist from Finland, with a chronic travel bug-illness.
Best travel experience so far: Dancing at local nightclubs in Zambia, hitchhiking in Malawi, sleeping in a cave in Cappadocia, and seeing the gorgeous Blue City of Chefchaouen in Morocco.
Andy: Full time travel junkie and occasional tour guide, also from Finland. Prefers palm trees over snow, so hasnt´t been in Finland for a while now. Best travel experience so far: Football world cup 2010 in South Africa, biking the ”death road” in Bolivia – and visiting North Korea! (Yes, he actually went.
