We are still traveling slowly up the coast, stopping at several different places ranging from large towns to places that are no more than a dozen houses, each have they own certain charm.
We spent a couple of nights behind the pub at Marlborough where we celebrated my birthday and a week at St Lawrence where we walked the wetlands, watching the birds and wildlife.
After spending a few days at Sarina, checking out the sugar cane industry and MacKay stocking and charging up we are now at a place called Seaforth and we feel inclined to want to stay a while.
This is a council run park, no power but our solar panel and good weather takes care of that. There are hot showers at 20c a time and we are right next to a beautiful beach. When the tide is on the way out, we can walk to a couple of islands and there is a pool to swim in. We even found an "op shop" yesterday with lots to rummage through and stacks of reading matter. There is a very basic Sunday market to top up on the fresh fruit and veg, and the local wildlife are very friendly and entertaining. All anyone can ever need!
There is supposed to be a limit of 8 weeks stay here but according to some of the other "happy campers" that is fairly flexible, and at $95 a week, we are more than happy to stay for a couple of weeks.
There are places to visit in the area. Mackay is still reasonably accessible, Finch Hatten Gorge and Cape Hillsborough National Park are also close by if we feel the need to get a bit more energetic.
Airlie Beach is about 200ks up the coast and we are thinking we may leave the van here and go check it out, stopping overnight before returning to this beautiful spot.
