The Whitsunday, Lindeman and Molle Groups are a collection of 74 tropical islands spread around Mackay and Airlie Beach.  Commonly referred to simply as The Whitsundays, the islands were named by Captain James Cook on his voyage through the area during 1770.  The Whitsundays are about as touristy as it gets, but it’s one of […]

  Emerald (S23°31.200’ E148°10.153’) in central-east Queensland was our stopping point for a couple of days in-between Carnarvon Gorge and the coast: I had a late notice article to write and while I was working Lisa was kind enough to tackle the mountain of washing we had piled up.  After two nights in Emerald we […]

Australia, Queensland Add comments

After almost a week around Inskip and exploring Fraser Island we were all in need of a scrub and some grocery restocking so headed north to the town of Bundaberg to take care of business.  Only a couple of hours from Inskip and Rainbow Beach, it was a scenic drive through the forestry country east […]

We bid Gina farewell on Monday afternoon as she hopped on a plane to Sydney, bound for Los Angeles and home to her family after almost five months here in Australia.  We didn’t spend much time in Brisbane, a couple of hours exploring the South Bank precinct before meeting up for the night with my […]

The Rainforest Way

Australia, New South Wales, Queensland Add comments

We actually started our tour of the Rainforest Way in-between our stay with Matt and Anna, and when we met with Gina back in Byron last Wednesday.  Our initial foray into the hinterland took us through Bangalow, the quaint hilltop settlement of Federal and through the magnificent Nightcap National Park.  Nightcap hasn’t had National Park […]
