Not being lovers of the city we pressed on past Townsville and settled into camp in time to watch the sunset over the water.

I suspect that is a cane fire we can see in the distance. There seem to be a few places where cane is still burnt before harvesting or perhaps they are burning the chaff on the ground after harvesting, I noticed some of that happening.


  1. What an idyllic place to be setting up camp.

  2. You have chosen a simply beautiful spot for camping. Waking up there must be something.

  3. Looks a much better spot than town.

  4. Yep it was a great spot BUT the campsites by the water were a LOOOONG way from the amenities, not so good for a van without a loo.

  5. Watch out for crocs, they are around and love mangroves. Queue scary music here.

    1. Didn't see croc signs until we went further north. But as I don't venture into the water it didn't really matter.

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
