The End Of Another Oz Adventure

We have spent our last few days quietly on the beach at a superb bushcamp at Inskip Point just outside Rainbow Beach. Quiet, that is until we bumped into Pete and Jill, Barry and Margaret and Roger some Aussie campers who befriended us couple of Poms. They are great people and we’ll always remember Happy Hour and ‘Beer o’clock’ and hopefully we will have that reunion in a years time.

On this adventure we have covered 8200 kms (5000 miles). It seems such a long time since we were racing away from Adelaide trying to get to Cooktown before the rains came (they never did!) and then spending time round the Atherton Tablelands, meeting Willie Gordon in Cooktown and croc spotting on the Daintree River. Of course the highlight has to be sailing round the Whitsundays with Sandy and Liz. Quite spectacular.

We ‘ve now come back down to New South Wales to meet friends Greg and Jill who we met last year and they are going to store Geoffrey for us.

We are now about as far from Perth (which is where we set off from 4 years ago) as you can possibly get. There is a saying “There’s a lot to see in Australia but there’s a lot of Australia to see it in”. This is one hell of a big country. How and when we’ll ever get back to Perth we don’t know.

We have loved our time in Queensland and as the early explorers may have written in their journals ‘the climate is most agreeable and the natives are friendly too”. Of course we will take home hundreds of photos, no doubt to bore someone with but most of all we will take our memories of Queensland home and they will stay with us for ever.
