Our journey to the Cape was coming to an end…we had been on a fantastic adventure! We loved the vast open spaces, the waterfalls and huge skies, the excitement of driving long stretches of dusty roads, rugged tracks, muddy water crossings and over rocky outcrops. There was something magical about sitting, listening to the world around us, reminiscing about the day just gone and planning for the day ahead… we had so much fun!
This untouched piece of Australia is apparently very beautiful; magical, vast and rugged… but potentially very dangerous, and we knew it wasn’t a matter of simply pointing Harry Hilux north to the ‘Tip’… we would have to work at it!
Join us on our journey along the Old Telegraph Track, to Australia’s northern most Tip, Thursday Island and much, much more…
After 8 weeks on the road living out of our hilux and sleeping in the rooftop tent, it didn’t take us long to work out the most beautiful things in life are not ‘things’… they are people and places, memories and photos!
We had visited Ayr on a previous trip and stayed at the local caravan park. We were there for 2 nights, and both nights ‘Burdekin snow’ fell and each morning our car and tent were covered in ash… ash that came from the practice of burning the sugar cane prior to harvesting.
We have so much more to explore and so many more places to see and if my blogs exploring our beautiful island continent by road haven’t got you packing the car by now, then the journey north to Cairns, Port Douglas and Cape York and beyond will…
Travel, it leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller!
The rugged charms of east coast NSW offers an abundance of national parks, surf beaches, dirt tracks, wildlife and disarming small-town vibes. Come check it out with us… you’ll love the ride!
Where do we go without getting grumpy or frostbite? We are heading to sunshine and warmth, to crystal skies, pristine beaches and clear blue water!
There were places to see, people to meet and memories to be made and it was time to head off again to see what was down the road!
It hadn’t taken us long to slot back into the daily routine of setup and pack up as each day rolled into the next.
