Oct 15, 2018 - Rest, Repair & Replenish

If its Tuesday it must be repair and replenish day... The nice people here loaned me a ladder to enable me to get up to see what was happening on the roof. No I didn’t walk on the roof but I found several leaks and fixed them, all due to oxidation of the substrate... All fixed now and therefore it wont rain again. Some washing was done and not even that has bought on the rain... It is however bucketing down on the Gold Coast to where we are traveling tomorrow, all booked in, locked and loaded. Lunch at the Yacht Club overlooking the...

Oct 15, 2018 - A day at Rainbow Beach

Something very strange happened today – the sun came out. All be it in short bursts. But first things first, I must have clipped a street sign or something sharp because a small tear had been made in the awning. Fortunately I had some vinyl sheet that I had previously used to repair the awning along the top seam where it had started to delaminate... A quick repair and I’ll claim on insurance when I get home... We then drove off in search of Cooloola Cove. We did not find the cove part and ended up in Rainbow Beach. Drove out as far as we...

Oct 14, 2018 - Reunion in Hervey Bay

We drove through pouring rain and across more flooded creeks to Hervey Bay to meet up with some old friends. So the first thing is that an error of grammar was pointed out to me regarding being sucked up into a sinkhole at Inskip Point. That should read simply swallowed by a sinkhole. Its all very secure where they live, probably to keep out feral tram enthusiasts. Gates are locked and controlled from the homestead remotely... James has 3 trams only 2 of which work the 3rd is static display... It was good two memebers of the old brigade...

Oct 13, 2018 - Tin Can Bay

We are here beside the sea side, I do like to be beside the seaside. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vhkj25fBKzo Was an interesting drive today, along flooded roads, twisting and turning through the Great Divide, battling torrential rain and avoiding people who eschew turning on their lights in poor conditions. We left Dalby at 0830 and arrived at Tin Can at 1300, not a quick trip for 300km plus there were stops for coffee at Kingaroy and fuel at Murgon. It held off raining long enough for us to set up though. We have had a bit of a look...

May 11, 2016 - Day 25

Day 25 Into Gympie had a look around and refurbished our food stocks and down to Rainbow Beach onto Inskip Peninsula where they catch the barge over to Frasier Island. To get to the barge you had to cross the beach sand and you have to air down as we could see where people had trouble getting there as the sand had deep ruts and we saw one 4x4 towing a camper get bogged it looked as if he had bottomed out on the camper. Camped at Tin Can Bay caravan park called Kingfisher This is well worth keeping in mind if you are over here.

Feb 16, 2014 - Tin Can Bay

After church (and morning tea) we collected the van and headed for Tin Can Bay, only 30 odd kms away on the western shore of the bay from Inskip. At first glance it didn't seem to have too much to recommend it but it did turn out to be quite pleasant. After our 5 - 6 days in the sand and dirt at I P everything needed a good wash. That done we set out to explore and found a new housing development 5 kms out of town, Cooloola Cove, with a good shopping centre. I also found a good hairdresser right opposite the caravan park. Monday This...

Sep 17, 2013 - Tin Can Bay/Rainbow Beach

18th September After an interesting drive from Bundaberg. mmm we were overtaken on blind corners, solid lines and oncoming traffic. They just didn't seem to care about the consequences or the innocent drivers. Scary at times we were beginning to think the road rules have changed. Arriving at the Kingfisher Caravan Park in Tin Can Bay, we will stay put till after the school holidays.The caravan park is old but clean and comfortable. They are renovating with a new amenities block starting in a few weeks. We have had a quiet relaxing week...

Nov 24, 2010 - Tin can bay

24th November Tin Can Bay Woke up at 4.30 the a stunning sunrise through the palm trees on the beach. Had a lie in and saw the wreck one last time before moving to the tourist information and it's park where the Pelicans came to be fed. A crazy Foreign pellican feeding local information man does it every morning. They are wierd creatures. Biting eachothers necks with their clumsy beaks. We waited till they flew off, randomly found a helpful tax office, then went for a walk to the free public settlers lagoon where we swam. It was a cut and...

Dec 5, 2009 - Tin Can Bay

Things I saw at Tin Can Bay. Nerida and Clayton and baby swimming beaches Nice Pool Dolphins that eat from your hand. Great breakfast cafe servicing tourists at said dolphin spot. Great parks and playgrounds and bike trails Things I DID NOT see at Tin Can Bay Tin Cans. Enough said, I'm going them for false advertising. Nah, it as a nice sleepy little beach town with unique dolphins that have learnt to cajole food out of rich tourists. At 5 bucks a head, I wonder what the dolphin cut is? We had a superb time catching up with our old...

Nov 5, 2008 - Tin Can Bay

Got up pretty early and left for Tin Can Bay. At half 7 in the morning an estuarine dolphin called Mystique comes up the river for feeding. In the afternoon went for a walk in the rainforest region of Kondalilla National Park, where we got to see the 80 metre waterfall
