We saw a lot of smoke and fires in past few weeks because of planned burns, not very pleasant to sleep in. We were laughing and joking about imagine Magnetic Island in the smoke when we get there. Well ... when we got to Townsville, that's were you have to take the ferry to Magnetic [...]
A few days ago on our way to Port Douglas we went looking for Cassowary in Etty Bay but didn't find any. We went back on our way back down 😅. This time they were there, we saw a female and a male. Offcourse, the males are the most beautifull ones with all the colors [...]
We both don't really like wine. Along the way we saw a Mango wine farm. Never heard of that before. We tought we should have a look, maybe we like mango wine 😉😁. We tasted some of the wines and bought a bottle of the sparkling ones, it's like cava but very sweet.
Yesterday we arrived in Port Douglas and today we went snorkeling in the Great Barrier reef 😎. The boat was called "Silversonic". In the morning a big bus picked us up and dropped us off at the harbor. It took us 1,5 hours with the boat to get to the first site of three. At [...]
On our way to Port Douglas now. We went passed the area around Mission Beach to look for Cassowaries. People told us to look for them at Etty Bay, we went there but didn't found any 😞. They say there are only a thousand left, so you have to be really lucky to catch a [...]
Early in the morning at the BIG4 caravan park in Townsville our neighbours leave to get some coffee. Daphne went to the toilets to brush her teeth. I was packing some stuff on our ute because we were getting ready to move on to Cairns. I hear some noise behind my back, sounded like something [...]
After a long and somehow boring ride from West to East we arrived in Townsville. We had a lot of stuff to do here. We needed to wash the car and the bike to put them online for sale, because we'll leave the country in a month. We also needed to find a garage that [...]
On the fifth day we visited Yurmikmik, the Motorcar Falls. It's a pretty long walk to get there, 5km one way, so that's 10km return. It's a hidden behind some biiiiig rocks. We were there on our own, pretty cool, it was worth the walk 😁.
On the fourth day we visited Yellow Waters and Maguk Falls. On our way to the Maguk Falls we had some bad luck, a rock pinched the right rear tire. Luckely we have 2 spares with us, so no worries 😅. At the end of the day we also did Gumlom, if you go for [...]
The third day we went back to the Jim Jim falls for the long walk up to the top of the falls, it took us 4 hours to get there and back. It was a spectacular walk to the top with really difficult terrain 😥. The view on top was a little bit disapointing. [...]
