Just a quick trip up the coast and a few days R&R in Port Douglas before the adventure begins.
The Leap Hotel, outside Mackay. Our free camp was at the far end of the verandah.
Early morning at The Leap – bit chilly!
At Biggenden. Lucky we didn’t need fuel … or groceries..
Buying a delicious coffee at Whitsunday Gold – and those fresh muffins there on the counter were divine.
Enjoying morning tea at Whitsunday Gold.
Mile after mile of canefields.
The Big Mango. Bowen, of course.
From a lookout north of Townsville. That’s Hinchinbrook Is and the Hinchinbrook Passage. Maybe we’ll sail it one day.
Fascinating chairs found along the coastal walkway from Rowes Bay to the Strand, Townsville.
His and Hers chairs – I think I’m in the wrong one!
I guess we’ll being seeing of few of this fellow’s relatives as we head north.
Great boardwalk, part of the coastal walk in Townsville. Fantastic!
The Big Gumboot at Tully. And yes, it was raining!
You know you’re in the tropics when you see that lush countryside, mountains and building clouds.
Beautiful Port Douglas, from the lookout.
