Our next major destination is Magnetic Island which we booked for two days hence, so a couple of stops down to Townsville where the ferry leaves from. The rainforest is ending as we head south but we found a lovely pocket of jungle at Josephine Falls and spent the first night at a beach camp. (Photos next ...
