The Journey South.... We had our first ocean swim at Agnes Waters, near 1770, in over a year where finally somebody didn’t have to be on croc watch! Kids couldn’t believe they could just jump straight in!
This last part of the East Coast is certainly going by quicker than we anticipated.......After being so remote for so long we are really struggling with East Coast caravan park stays. We are so used to being remote, this camping beside people isn’t really for us.
Lucky we have got a few great mates to visit on the way down. Huge thanks to Pete and Jules in Townsville for a great catch up and dinner. Thanks Nick and Rowena for a well overdue, dinner and catch up in Mackay. This was followed by an awesome day out on Julie and Nigel’s boat in Hervey Bay - had a beautiful lunch and swim over at Fraser Island in Kingfisher Bay.
Make sure you check out the famous Urangan Pier in Hervey Bay. Lots going on there!
The Cassowary Coast...
Well it’s certainly lived up to its name! 3 Cassowary sightings in as many days. Even one with a couple of chicks in tow!
South Mission is the place to stay here.
Beachcomber Coconut Caravan Park is right on the beach. We had the joint almost to ourselves! It’s a spectacular beach with views straight across to the beautiful Dunk Island and many other of the ‘Family Islands‘ close by. There is a stinger net right out front, a must this time of year if you want a dip in the sea in FNQ. Unfortunately the Dunk Island Resort and the famous yachties’ bar I visited many years ago is now all closed thanks to a devastating cyclone a few years ago.
After a good few weeks exploring the Cape and surrounds it was time for a bit of R and R in one of our favourite spots....Port Douglas. We parked the rig up and went for a bit of luxury, staying at @mowbraybythesea Martin (the owner) looked after us extremely well. His service was second to none. This place is a little gem. Perfect location right near the famous 4 mile beach and 5 min walk to town.
Our great mates at @realaussieadventures organised us a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. We spent the day snorkeling the outer reef onboard AquaQuest, a new boat run by Divers Den. The crew were all amazing! Once again the service was some of the best we’ve had. The kids loved it too!
Brolga in flight this morning. Spent a couple of hours from sunrise with @andrewt1970 at the School Dam. Not as many birds as I’d seen the day before, but a really good variety. Got to enjoy shooting before it gets too hot!

Spotted (and heard) this male Rufous Whistler several times while out at the weir with @andrewt1970 a few days ago. Only managed a few shots of him on this branch before he took off to the next, then flew off on a bug hunt.

Roko Island Pearl Farm . What a spectacular little island this is!
We did the half-day tour from Punsand Bay campground - only $90.00 per adult and $45.00 for kids. Excellent value. And we pretty much had our own private boat ride and tour!
The Pearl Farm is a boutique family run business. From the moment you step out onto their hand-built jetty you get that feeling that you’re entering a very special place. Jason, the son, talked us through the whole process of Pearl Farming, we even got to see the birth of a Pearl!
The Island is pure postcard stuff. If a half day isn’t enough, you can stay over there in their glamping tents. If your lucky you’ll get to try one of Nigel, the care-takers, home brew. I may of had a few sneaky ones...! There’s an original old stone jetty that juts out through the mangroves, that was built 80-odd years ago by the original Pearl Luggers back in the day.
Melbourne > Brisbane > Townsville > Cloncurry > Mount Isa 📍
WHAT A DAY! 2:30am start, 10pm finish.. I survived! My little frequent flyer was a saint. I still can’t believe how well he handled all the take offs/landings. So many compliments from both staff and passengers. You make me so proud to be your Mumma 🥰
The Savannah Way - the spares are coming in handy! 😬

Nervous. Pulling out of Chillagoe I was nervous-nervous, Andrew more excited-nervous. We had roughly 2 weeks ahead of us, with no reception, possible wet river crossings, 560km on a dirt road and mixed information on it’s condition. The general message was, ‘it’s good till Dunbar, then, not so good’. Dunbar Station was roughly half way. Some said there was water over the crossings, others said ‘watch out for salt water crocs’, ‘bull sharks’ and ‘don’t go swimming’. We ended up spending our departure day talking, asking and listening to lots of advice - so much advice that we didn’t leave until 3pm. The long and the short of it was we could do it, but be cautious around the water. Don’t dip your toes in murky water, gather from the clear, have a spotter and look out for slide marks (different than skiddy marks). So with panniers bursting from the random collection of food we’d gathered between the general store and service station, we released our safety grip on Chillagoe. What ensued was a 12 day bubble of adventure within our longer adventure. Being off the grid and uncontactable, cycling a road where the other travellers ‘have your back’, stop and check you’re ok, or wave through the dust haze. These are all good things. The crocs are there, but following the simple rules lowered our heart rates with each crossing, water collection and wash. We’ve come out the other side now and it would be fair to say we’ll miss the Burke Development Road and all that came with it (apart from the 100km of bull dust and corrugations). I’ll also go into the next long isolated section with much more of a ‘yes we can’ sort of attitude... because we can!
After a cracking weekend of laughs, yarns and ‘trying’ to keep up with the kids, this *fossil is headed back to stock camp, which is now at Cape York. Goodbye Toilets. Goodbye Bed. Goodbye Civilisation. The little luxuries were good whilst they lasted but this Cowgirl has to return to her bike and move some moos. BBL. 🏃🏼♀️💨
*The nickname aptly given to me by my crew who are mostly at least 11yrs younger than me. #normantonrodeo#gulfofcarpentaria
