On Saturday morning, rain was forecasted, so after doing a food shop we headed to Agnes water and the nearby town of 1770. This is where Captain James Cook first landed in Queensland in; you guessed it, 1770.....
It was a pretty dull day to be honest, so here are a couple of pictures of a Pukeko and her chicks from our campsite.
We chased to rain to Agnes Water before setting up camp.
The next day was beautiful. We headed to an early morning church service before making our way towards the town of 1770. On the way we came across a pretty good local market, so we had a wander around and bought a couple of books.
We have decided that Queensland is most definitely hot (how they survive in the summer, I have no idea). It is also a lot more like what we expected of Australia.
We did a few short walks to lookouts in 1770 (there isn't much else there) but after lunch we decided that it was just too hot. So we went back to the campsite, walked down to the nearby beach and played in the sea to cool off, and just to be sure, this was followed by a cold shower!
Later in the afternoon, we went for another walk along the coastline.
All in all, very relaxing.
Until Next time
Joanna and David
