... with the sailing. It was called Avatar and this excited me as I was able to make the joke, 'maybe I will sail into another world'. This, obviously, didn't receive as much positive reinforcement as I had hoped but I went with it anyway. The staff on this boat were just amazing and really conscientious of the customers well being and enjoyment of the trip. They took us to a few islands where we were able to snorkel around the reefs with the fish there. Bright, rainbow coloured ...

After getting ready and having ...

... Mt Isa to Cloncurry was very picturesque with beautiful views of the ochre-red Selwyn Ranges.

At Cloncurry we headed north on the Matilda Way, this time certain we had bitumen all the way to our destination.

From Cloncurry to Normanton the highway intermittently changes between being a one-laned highway and a two-laned highway. In other words when you are in single-lane mode you drive in the middle of the road until you ...
