We arrived just before dark yet again. This place is rather nice.The interwebs tells me; Seventeen Seventy, also written as 1770, is a village in Queensland, built on the site of the second landing by James Cook and the crew of HM Bark Endeavour in May 1770. Total distance traveled: 5910km
I can’t say that I enjoyed my time here. It’s amazing how a few can tarnish the entire city. There was one thing worth seeing.
We’ve driven a million miles today to this nice little free camp just south of Rockhampton. We arrived just in time to get a meal at the pub.
Last night we stayed at Ayr but we arrived after dark and left early so didn’t do anything in a the area worth posting. Today we’re heading to Bolder Creek which is West of Mackay. (UPDATE The navigator was out by hundreds of kilometres and we’re near Rockhampton)
The tallest single drop water fall in the country, at 268 metres it certainly is spectacular. Just for fun the eldest boys and I did the walk to the base. All of the info in the area says you need to be quite fit… there is a reason for those warnings. With the temp in […]
Another day and another camp with us as the only tourists. There is something to be said about holidays outside of the term breaks 🙂 This is a great spot, the kids made a cubby while the grown ups packed up… again! Total distance traveled: 4448km
The day started with visit to the damn dam wall. That water falling gave me the idea to visit the local water falls. What better way to spend a day than going to waterfalls. Not exactly what the navigator had in mind for an adventure. Millaa Millaa was the first reasonable water fall and was […]
“We didn’t spend anywhere near enough time in this place”, something that we keep saying more and more as the trip goes on. We should have given ourselves more time here.
Another one of those local suggestions… who wouldn’t want to see the Worlds biggest Amethyst Geode. There are lots of great items in this collection including the giant geode. If you look very closely you might see what scared the kids.
It has been one Acton packed adventure after another. Train up the mountain, sky rail down, snorkeling on the great barrier reef, ice creams and fishing off the pier in Palm Cove. Very happy campers.
