Heading South

7/9/19 Alas our time in paradise had to come to an end. With only 2 weeks left we had to keep moving south. We called into Tully to look at the Giant Golden Gumboot a monument to the record breaking rains of 1950, when 7.9m of rainfall made it the wettest town in Australia. There … Continue reading Heading South

Babinda

Once we left Archer Creek we popped into Milla Milla falls as it’s only a short detour off the main hwy, before continuing on to Innisfail to do some much needed grocery shopping. Wind Turbines on Windy Hill Wind Farm at Ravenshoe. Our completed route so far. Red line shows where we have been. Then … Continue reading Babinda

Archer Creek Rest Area

We left Cobbold Gorge about 8.30am, the trip back into Forsayth taking the best part of an hour. We stopped at Georgetown for morning tea before continuing along the Savannah Way stopping at any place of interest along the way. One stop was Mt Surprise which is one of the stops of the Savannahlander train … Continue reading Archer Creek Rest Area

Croydon

We got up pretty smartly this morning to pop down to the markets at the Sunset Tavern, walking distance from the park. Even at that time it was warming up and we knew we were in for a hot day. There was only a handful of stalls and not the sort of things we were … Continue reading Croydon

Normanton

There were several big trucks passing by overnight, making it a bit noisy at times, overall all a good place to stop for the night. The road up to Burke and Wills Roadhouse was very good and 2 lanes. From there to Normanton the road was rougher and at times only single lane. We were … Continue reading Normanton

Toilets, showers, bins, dogs allowed, mobile reception, suitable for all types of RV’s and tents. There is also a small playground which our … Continue reading Benarkin

Toogoolawah

From Bonshaw we went via Texas which was indeed packed with campers, probably hunkering down while the school holidays were on. Plenty of space though. From there it was the back way up to Toowoomba. It is now a very busy place and so green compared to where we have been. Out to Hampton and down … Continue reading Toogoolawah

Bonshaw Weir

We were sad to leave the great camping spot we had here at Bingara but with only a few days left this trip we had to move on. We were going to stop at Severn River, at the time the grass was long but it was being mowed, there was very little water in the … Continue reading Bonshaw Weir

Bingara

Now we are talking 🙂 but more on that later. As you come into town there are some lovely painted silos. We love it when town’s do this sort of thing. The people who paint these are very talented and it's amazing how they can paint such detail, be able to paint so close up … Continue reading Bingara

Tamworth to Manilla

We headed to the Info and Golden Guitar Centre, there were several vans parked there but they do not have destination RV parking which we thought was pretty poor. Tamworth does not seem to be RV friendly. There are a lot more shops and businesses in this area than when we use to live here. … Continue reading Tamworth to Manilla
