Backpackers Newsletter #10 - May 2004
Well despite best intentions I see it's nearly a year since my last e-mail to you
all - Sorry!
Summer has come and gone - the usual crazy season. Christmas was a riot, perhaps
the highlight being the mid-day naked dancing on the pool table (nice one Donny!) And
New Year's Eve saw most of the hostel celebrating atop Observatory Hill again, a great
night for everyone.
It hasn't been a fantastic summer for us out on the water - we only did one party
pontoon trip, back in December. Not the most successful of days, we left with three
boats afloat and returned with two. Perhaps the less said about that the better.
("Put it in neutral Oli"!)
When I last wrote I was a free man but (unfortunately?!) that came to an end this
February - I married my old girlfriend Fiona Birdsall. Attached are some photos of
the great day! We honeymooned in Koh-samui in Thailand and had a great time.
After nearly four years of operation the hostel has now been included in the latest
edition of the Lonely Planet's Australia guidebook, and what a review they've given
"This is one of the friendliest hostels we've ever visited, run by two gregarious
brothers who know 'the Shire' inside out. Facilities are comfy and well maintained,
with a cheery vibe from staff and travellers alike. You can also get the key for the
Garie Beach YHA, and it's a great place to join others doing the 26km coastal walk or
to get your surfing skills up."
A big thanks to all of you who've helped us create this friendly atmosphere.
Hopefully this review means we'll maintain our popularity throughout the winters as
well as our wild summer months.
Our growing popularity also means that we're bringing forward our plans to build an
extension, hopefully by Christmas we should have an extra 22 beds in 4 more
dormitories added. Come on back and see for yourselves!.
For those considering a return before year's end, here's our winter special: If
you're still traveling in Australia or have a friend who's coming to Sydney, email us
and you/they can have a night *FREE* on us until end-July 2004.
To all you long-stayers, returnees, and mentalists: honourable (and dishonourable)
mentions will be made in my next newsletter, in which I'll also write up a much better
review of the last year-or-so.
Remember, wherever you may be now you'll always be a Cronullan in spirit: Keep The
