Hi there yous guys - glad to know you are back in civilization (sorry, that doesn't apply to Aussie). We did the trip from Brisbane to Cairns last year. We were told it was a 15 hour drive but don't listen to them, it took two weeks with a lot of travelling, 2,500 kms but a great trip especially if you like squished kangaroos and bananas. Try Kinkia Beach cabin at motor camp, near Yapoon, Mission Beach south of Cairns and you will love Cairns. Watch out for box jelly fish, green ants, salt water crocks, sharks and red backs otherwise have a great trip. It will be safer to say in the pubs!!! Love Jan and Norm

.....don't forget to try the famous meat pies from the caravan down on the waterfront in Sydney, comes with mushy peas and mashed spuds and gravy - that'll stop you in your boots! And in the pubs ask for a schooner - that's a large beer. And also, at Sydney quay there is a fish market that sells prawns as big a steaks! Ooooohhh I'm jealous again! Karen xx

Hi again, now I have learned how to send you a message there is no stopping me. Thought about what I wrote yesterday and Kinka Beach and Mission Beach probably wouldn't suit you as it was nice and quiet and just right for us BOFs. I am sure by now you know how to find your way around so will wait to hear all about your trip around Aussie. Have fun. Love Jan

How are you girlies? Hope you are well and not too cream crackered. If I´ve got your timetable right, by the time you get this there should be some fab shots of the Opera House and Sidney Harbour by now on your Blog. Hope you enjoyed the climb - I´m not that good with heights but what a fab experience it must have been - it´s so great to follow your travels. Hey, take care with all that driving huns.
