As we left Speewah Campgrounds another young couple were parked just around the corner waiting for our spot so it is clear this neck of the woods is hitting the mark among holiday makers.
Rachel needed to work today and we badly needed to get some washing done and power up so we made our way back to Mareeba. After a little search for a spot to stay for the night we came across the Mareeba Rodeo Showgrounds. For only $15 a night there are powered sites, a laundry and hot showers to take advantage of.
Our spot was a green grassed area right under the rodeo arena grandstands. Just before dusk we climbed up to the top row of the grandstand and looked out over the town. A nice and quiet finish to a surprisingly busy day.
