There is no lack of shade in Queensland caravan parks, the trees are so big up here and sprawley. We went on a gondola ride to kuranda a town in the tableland today, spectacular views above the rainforest . It was full of tourist shops and attractions, we walked and walked and then got a train back in the afternoon, it was a long day. Last night it rained for the first time since we have been away and I woke to stepping off the bed into a puddle. We think we have solved the problem . Tomorrow will be the last time we will see our travelling partners as we head south along the coast and they spend more time up here and then go east back through longreach. It will take us a couple of days to reach Brisbane and hopefully catch up with old friends and Shane who is holidaying on the gold coast.
