So our journey began early on Saturday morning with us getting off while it was still dark. We had a pretty good run with no traffic / roadwork hold ups which was a nice change!
I dread the Sydney – Brisbane drive, we do it so often and I’m just over it (think we need to move to Qld as we spend so much time there!).
After 11 1/2 hours on the road we finally arrived at Danny & Cat’s house in Margate, QLD. It’s been a few months since we’ve seen them and it’s always great to catch up. And of course, baby cuddles with Steph are great too!
We left Margate around 9am Sunday morning to drive to Rainbow Beach, about a 2 1/2 hour drive. Once there we topped up fuel (yes first fill for the trip, little bit different to the old Prado!) and filled the water bottles and headed down to Inskip Point to the barge. We were one of only 2 cars on the barge so that was our first sign of how few people might be around.
A short drive later we arrived at the place we intended to camp and drove around looking for a nice campsite and set about setting up our home for the next week. About 40 min later we had this! Just behind the dune is the beach so we have an amazing view, yet are a little sheltered from the wind.
