Albury, Sydney, Brisbane Australia

We got up nice & early the next morning, very very tired, and made our way to the train station again. This was going to be the longest couple of days so far.
11:35am - We left Albury on the train & made our way back to Sydney. After 7hrs on the train we arrived & made our way back to the Radisson Plaza. We were checking into our hotel only to sleep and then get up bright & early again, to catch yet another train, this time north to Brisbane.
11:35 am – we left Sydney on the train
6:30 pm – we arrive in Casino. Here we have to jump on a bus to take us the rest of the way to Brisbane. Up the Gold Coast, through Surfer’s Paradise. I wanted to see Surfer’s Paradise sooooooo bad. Unfortunately when we passed through it, it was pitch black out. All I got to see were the lights of the city & the cars around us.
10:30 pm – we arrive in Brissy. Caught a cab to our hotel, The Carleton Crest, which was another jaw dropper. Absolutely beautiful. I felt like a hobo walking in the lobby. Gold trim everywhere, shiny floors, business people running around and we stumble in after hours on a train and then a bus. It was great. We got settled in our rooms then all gathered in Jim & Huey’s room to try to decide what things we wanted to do while here.
