June 12 We have to take a short detour to an auto electrician in Airlie Beach who finds and fixes our electrical issues. So it is back to the Bruce Highway, turn right and head north.
For us, it is impossible to be travelling north between Mackay and Townsville without stopping at Groper Creek. We are lucky enough to have a site right on the water so we can set out the crab pot, cast for prawns for bait and fish right from our back door. We have booked in for a week but will probably extend.
I just wanted to mention an adventure that my brother, Richard, has just completed. In his retirement year, he has cycled (yes cycled) 1,027 Miles (approx 1,640 Kms) from his home in Shrewsbury to visit each of his 3 children and their families, one of whom lives in Holland. Susan, his wife, drove the campervan and set up over 20 campsites on the journey.
I think we will stick to the Landcruiser and the 24 ft caravan.
