Before leaving Townsville this morning we took a drive down to The Strand and walked around, what a beautiful are. Palm trees, the beach, pathways and a rock pool, as well as views across to the mountains, such a pretty place.
Today's journey was only about 380km, but it took forever! Lucky it was a scenic drive. The roadworks were killing us again, they are absolutely everywhere.
Stopped in at Ingham to grab a bite to eat and buy some sudafed for my sinus .... What an adventure that turned out to be ..... Who would have thought buying a packet of sudafed would be so hard!
George and I visited a nice waterfall on the way and finally arrived at Mareeba about 4pm and met up with Stewy, Kristy and Rori.
Spending the night at the Mareeba Rodeo grounds, $16 for a double for a powered site, can't really complain! And the place is packed with caravans and campervans, so it's a pretty popular place.
First night of camping, so the trip has really begun! The trek to Cape York starts tomorrow ..... Finally!!
