      ... golf club is set on Stewart Island in the middle of the river and had glorious views out across the river to the tree-lined banks. The food was decent and they did $10 lunch specials so we tucked into steak and prawn cutlets. Not bad. We were however the youngest people there by about 30 years. It was full of old men sharing a midday pint or playing the slots and old women having a gossip and playing cards. It was actually a nice change after ...

      ... turned on my good ear and heard nothing anymore and fell asleep like a baby... to wake up this morning around 7, fresh and ready for a new day, while my roommates were all sleeping in;-)

      I had nothing to eat so intended to go for a good breakfast at a terrace. Asking a map of the town to a lovely young lady that was also awake, we start to talk. Alice is French, has a working holiday visa and spent already 8 months here in Australia, still ...

      ... the distance signs to Brisbane has been building it up massively for me! I take particular note of James's tip to go and say hi to people at rest areas - he's been given freshly caught fish and shown local attractions he'd otherwise have missed. I hope I can get in on this act on my travels! I get to bed at 10.30, slightly wobbly after sampling a couple more of Australia's beer selection!
