Where I stayed
Mudjimba Beach Caravan Park
Anyway I digress back to the rum! We find The Rum Distillery (should have just wound down the window in hindsight) and head to the shop couple of “tastings” couple of purchases and we’re on our way. The rain has again found us (we keep trying to out-run it) and we head to Bundaberg Barrel where they make Ginger Beer & other soft drinks. We go through the inter-active museum tour here (thought this one was better for the kids, we’d already been on the rum tour last visit) & thought it was fantastic. And really nice staff, yay!
Off we head on our merry way to The Sunshine Coast (me driving) with no real idea where we will stay, we’ll just wing it!
Then we hit the rain, boy did it rain. It poured which meant the traffic slowed right down, the funniest part was on the CB radio we heard a running commentary from two quite verbal truckies which were having a few issues with a motor-home going particularly slowly holding up a lot of traffic! It’s quite interesting to hear what truckies think of driving skills of drivers on the road certainly made me more aware!
We arrive at Coolum Beach just on 5pm & after a few hasty ph calls to some local caravan parks we decide to head to the “Family Parks caravan park in Mudjimba”, a decision we would live to regret!!
