Today was a bit of a quiet day, we are all a bit tired. Slept in, then spent the morning searching for the best deals online on the various activities we want to do. Booked a helicopter ride for Friday afternoon, and a parasailing activity for Friday morning. Expensive, but got good deals on these via an online discounting site, so as good as it gets here.

We are right next to the camp kitchen and toilets etc, so we all had showers (nice long hot ones) and did some laundry. Then used the camp kitchen to cook up a big brekkie feed. Washed up and cleaned the van out a bit, then decided to head into the QT city.

Quite a few people around as you would expect, and walked around browsing here and there for a while. Went into another booking office and booked a quad bike tour for tomorrow morning, for the boys and I. Lynette giving this one a miss, and will probably go for a massage instead. That will be the last big thing we do here

Patrick and I went into a new attraction they have only just opened, called Fear Factory. Basically entails you walking thru a maze in the dark with various things jumping out in front out of you. And people grabbing your leg, or touching your shoulder etc on the way past. Cant see a bloody thing, except for the occasional red LED to guide you. Was not as scary as they made out, but lots of fun.

Eventually found Lynette and Mitchell wandering the streets looking for us, so we all continued to look around the city centre Had an ice sculpture someone had made which was pretty cool, plus an ice rink in the middle of town.

We went for a feed at the local wood fired pizza place which was packed out, then headed back to the van for the rest of the evening to get an earlyish night. Got to be up early for the quad bikes tomorrow.
