Where I stayed
Camped by the boat ramp...
Emu Park is a lovely little town and the people so friendly...thank
heavens as I had an 'emotional' break down. After a night camped near the boat
ramp, Wednesday morning was spent waiting around for an oil change, filter and
a new temperature gauge as guess what...yep mine wasn't working...surprise,
After Emu Park I wanted to spend a night at a cosy little
beach just north of Yeppoon, but that was short lived due to the repairs. Had
to make a return to Rockhampton as well to have the TV checked out, well that
was a waste of time not to mention the $$$$$ on petrol
Australia is a beautiful country, no denying that...but we have the worst TV
and mobile coverage in the world and no matter where you go there will always
be 'dead' spots. So that's it.
By the time I had finished with the TV guy it was
approaching 5pm and I had no idea where to stay so I found this out of the way
place near the Music Bowl in Rocky and thought "this will do me". Got
the gas stove out, poured a glass of white and started cooking my steak before
it went off...no fridge...unless of course I stay in a caravan park...getting a
little expensive for that. Got back in the van and holy crap almost got carried
away by mosquitos, never seen mosquitos that big, and hundreds of them.
Naturally I didn't have any repellent, (URGENT note to self)...must buy next
big town I reach.
