We had encountered a group of cycilist along the way and found out they were participating in the Cairns to Karumba bike ride raising money for charity. We also discovered they had a big night on the town the night before..... Now we know why the groups were so split up :)
We were only in Mt Surprise for one night so didn't unpack too much. We had a stroll around town (10mins) and visited the Gem shop where you could fossick for Topaz and the like.
The surrounding area is supposed to be good for that sort of thing.
Had dinner at the pub and an early night.
The following morning we decided to take it easy and visit a few places along the way and decided on the run where to stay. It was also time to say bye bye to Ivan who had kept us company since Karumba. Thanks for the chats, laughs, and sharing your fish, and we are sure we'll meet up soon as we are still heading the same way.
After more head winds, one lane roads, and rain we arrived in Ravenshoe... but thats another chapter
