Airlie Beach to Rosslyn Bay, QLD

Tuesday 5th September 2023
Today we spent doing a bit of housekeeping in our cabin at Airlie Beach. Car insurance, bills, shopping, washing and a very big rest. The weather has been lovely, a maximum of between 25 and 30° every day. This afternoon we realised the registration for the Prado was due on Thursday, so after ringing around I finally found someone who can do an interstate safety inspection for us tomorrow morning. This could be problematic if they need anything fixed bvut fingers crossed it all goes well.

After a little bit of stress getting the car registered, we were on our way again by about 10.30am. We have a big day driving to Rosslyn Bay near Yeppoon. About 500km. Unfortunately, the only way to get there is on David’s favourite Bruce Hwy which we have been on a few too many times in. the last week. I drove a little after lunch in David’s rest time, he always has a bit of a struggle after lunch. I remembered I had left my jacket at Sarina about 20mins after we had passed there. Oh well!~ Back we go, adding about an hour to our trip. We finally arrive at Rosslyn Bay at about 5.55pm, just before the caravan park office closes.

We met some like minded hikers from Tasmania in the camp kitchen tonight and enjoyed a lovely chat with them about hiking options in Tassie.
