... Beach so we decided that instead of hanging around here waiting for a trip, we would instead go inland to camp tonight then head up to Hervey Bay tomorrow to sort a Fraser Island trip and hopefully there might be a bit more going on there to keep us busy!

Tuesday was rather dull and cool and we passed through another couple of very quaint towns: Goomeri and Kilkivan to rejoin the Bruce Highway on our way to the fairly large town of Gympie, where Lynda had heard they had an Aldi supermarket! We entered its address to our GPS that took us right into its car park, ...
