Adam and Charlotte's Great Escape.
Hi everyone it has been a while since our last postcard because we haven't been able to find an internet station. From Airlie beach we drove to Makey and only spent one night there as Makey itself was nothing special. The following day we decided to take a drive down the Pioneer Valley where we stopped to look at the Broken River, which was a bit of a dissappointment due to the lack of a river worth seeing being there. However the day wasn't a complete waste of time we had lunch in a place called Pinical where we had a famous Pinical pie!! After a night in Serina we did the long drive to Rockhampton where we spent two nights. It is ment to be a big steak town in OZ but we saw lots of live cows but no where to eat them. We had a nice day exploring the Zoo and the surrounding beaches. The zoo was definatly worth a vistit as it was free and was a bit like Tilgate Park but with more excotic animals. On our way to Gladstone we detoured to Mt Morgan where we were hoping to have a tour of there open mine. But they were not running so we went to look at it from a look out point. Gladstone wasn't anything great but it does have the biggest port in Australia. Signing off Adam and Charlotte
