Not a bad drive today, some really nice scenery along the way. Passed a lot of sugar cane fields and the scenery switched between completely flat, mountains and the most beautiful aqua blue water.
Could do without the constant delays from roadwork though! From north of Gypie we have had constant roadwork, it's just the waiting time that varies!! At some point in the future, this drive is going to be so much quicker due to all the dual lanes they are creating on the Bruce highway.
Arrived in Townsville, found a motel to check into, had a quick shower and freshen up and then headed off to visit friends who have recently moved up to Townsville. Had a lovely dinner with Jack and Elise and their family and a good catch up. Found out some interest facts about cane toads too .... Not sure we should share that info here though!!
Anyway, off to bed now for our drive tomorrow to Mareeba to meet up with Stewy, Kristy and Rori for the official start of our Cape York trip.
