Airlie Beach 10th March 2010

We stopped overnight at Townsville with nothing to report apart from torrential rain and a very gloomy motel room!! Only thing worthy of mention here was our conversation with a shop assistant in the liquor store who told us that the terrible weather was unusual for this time of year and according to her grandfather, down to the earth shifting off its axle! Well that explains everything at last!

Airlie Beach, on the Great Barrier Reef was our next stop and a vast improvement thank goodness!  We stayed at the Coral Bay Hotel and were upgraded to a beautiful suite with stunning views.  We returned our hire car and then walked through the little high street back to our hotel, observing the huge noticeboard warning  of all the deadly types of jellyfish in the sea – think we'll stick to the swimming pools from now on!

We had a great short stay at Airlie Beach (made up for the last dump!) and tomorrow off to Hamilton Island.
