A swim in the rock pools was in order today.
Camp for the next few days. Went for a little drive that drove the chief navigator around the bend but the end of the road had an awesome view of Lake Wabby. A hot spot for tourists Eli Creek. A little luxury ship nobody wanted.
The ocean crossing was a little rough but we managed 🙂 The locals were ready for a traditional welcome and we found our home for the next 6 nights.
Inskip Peninsula is a narrow, sandy finger of land built up by wind and waves. Inskip is a gateway to World Heritage-listed Fraser Island and where we’ll be catching the barge. Total distance traveled: 6252km
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…
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! http://youtu.be/8VmX1ypOdCU Total distance traveled: 4448km
