1st Jul 2017 - 7th Jul 2017
Week 415- Townsville

We have enjoyed our stay in Townsville although we haven't seen a lot of the town.  I think the Dam Fine Rally can be judged as a great success - 325 vehicles turned up and we were entertained by musicians, comedians and some very talented bush poets.

We were welcomed by the locals and the Tropical Coast Wanderers volunteers.  A great job was done by all.

The Highway Wanderers happy hour maxed out on the second night with 95 people.  We too had fun and games, jokes and charades and our own Highway Wanderers band.  I would not like to pick up the alcohol bill for the week. 

So with the Dam Fine Rally done and dusted, we are preparing our vehicle to head further north and take in the sights of the Atherton Tablelands and the tropical rainforests.

Next: Week 416 - Tully

Many people travel with their dogs. They are loyal and great companions but unfortunately there are a few dog haters around, but we just turn our nose up at them.
