15 kms further on we left the Flinders Highway again for our first look at the Sheringa Beach area. More stunning scenery, lovely beaches and a fisherman’s paradise, all fringed by huge sand dunes will require further investigation on a calm day on...

Next morning we drove to Point Drummond. We stopped for a cuppa on a cliff with stunning views. Unfortunately the wind increased in intensity during the afternoon. We moved down to Picnic Beach where the Navigator almost got seasick as the wind...

Lincoln National Park

We’d never ventured into the Park before and were gobsmacked by the stunning scenery. Having good weather was a bonus and we just fell in love with this beautiful area. Our first night was spent at Surfleet Cove,...

2012 hasn’t been all thrills, more like ‘spills’ with family ailments keeping us anchored in Newcastle for periods of time. However after the Driver had a shoulder operation, the Navigator took over driving duties and headed north to visit our...

My brother, Darryl is asking for my next blog, so here goes!
Next stop – Bowen, a pretty sea-side town with very wide streets. We went up to the Flagstaff Hill lookout and coffee shop. To our disappointment, the coffee shop was closed for...

“What is Paronella Park?” we asked.
“Oh, you must go there. You won’t regret it.” they replied.
So we did and we don’t!
We were advised to book at least a few days in advance, so we did. Attached to Paronella Park is a small...

We came to Queensland for the sun. The advertising says “Beautiful one day, perfect the next.” Which one is beautiful – the one where it rains nearly all day, or the overcast and grey day? We feel like asking for our money back, but don’t know...

Shall I tell you of our trials at Cape Tribulation?
I accept that our experience may not be everyone’s but from a few hours after we arrived at Daintree until the day after we left Cape Tribulation, it rained nearly all the time. And the...

On our way to Cooktown we spent two nights in a freecamp near Mt Molloy. Then on our way north we spent a night at Palmer River CP. We won’t make that mistake again. We were told to park near the tents which turned out to be very close to the...

It has been 2 weeks since my last report and you probably thought we had been taken by a crocodile but a derailment story is hard to beat.
For the last couple of weeks we have been wandering around the Atherton Tablelands. We enjoyed the...

When we arrived at Camooweal Billabong, we thought we were in paradise (hang

After 10 or 11 days visiting family and friends in Darwin, we are on the road again. Although we enjoyed our visits, we are glad to be away from the humidity of Darwin. Being southerners, we do not cope well with humidity and the Dry was late...

Yes, I have been here before, but the grass is green and mowed, water is very nice to drink, and wash. A lot has happened since the last letter, so I had better start. I did that flight from Kununurra and it was sensational, I was up front with...
