Holiday Update....

Hi all back again,
Sorry It has been so long between posts but boy have we been busy....
We left Charters Towers on Easter Monday and travelled through to Lucinda, which is only about 140kms north of Townsville.
Below is a picture of the 6km long Bulk sugar jetty. It is the worlds largest bulk sugar jetty. Lucinda it self is a small town of around 500 people. Good fishing to be had there as well .So we were told as the boys didn't catch a thing.
We spent 3 nights there then on the road again, we stopped in at the Big Gumboot at Tully and surprise it was raining.
Tully has a average rainfall of 4 metres a year so no surprise it was raining.

Then it was through Innisfail (below) which has amazing Art Deco buildings all through out the town, below you can see the water tower in the distance.
We stayed just out of Innisfail at Flying Fish point, again not many fish....But lovely spot.
Paronella Park
This has been the high light of my holiday so far you should have a look at the link for your self.
This amazing garden was built by Jose Paronella in 1930, and been through floods, Cyclones and fire and yet still parts of it are still standing today. I just might be showing you a lot more photos at a later date...
On the way home from Paronella Park we stopped at a winery called Murdering Point Winery.
Had a few taste testing there and bought a few wines, ports and liquors....Still some left....hahahaha
From Flying Fish point we headed to Cairns......
More of that later.
I have had the BEST holiday travelling with my family. Well 5 out of 7 of them. The babies have been so good and I have had LOTS of Grandma time with them.

Easter Holiday.....

We have been on the road since Good Friday. This road trip is a family affair.

We drove to Charters Towers and had Easter there with David, Karen and Mason, Chloe and Damien drove up the day before with Harrison.

Then it was back on the road again to camp and fish at Lucinda.
We had a good set up too.
We spent 3 nights here fishing and relaxing, then onto Flying Fish point.

Tomorrow we drive up to Cairns.
Just a quick blog to say Hello and let you know where I am.

Hope to blog again soon.
A very belated Happy Easter to every one.
