Airlie Beach to Emu Park (16.08.2012): Today we set off at 8am for the long drive down the coast to Emu Park. This travelling lark is tiring. I don't remember the last lie in. We had a great driver but unfortunately it was just the two of us on the bus again. Nothing much to report re. the journey. We travelled through some 300km of nothingness (mainly sugar cane fields) before hitting Rockhamptom (beef capital). We then travelled on the 35km to Emu Park stopping off for a wee bush walk where we went to a turtle lookout. They love lookouts in Australia.
We arrived at Emu Park Beach Resort by 7pm and were upgraded to a nice room with a balcony. It is like a holiday within a holiday here. Nice pool, no bunkbeds.. woo. So excited about the cattle farm stay tomorrow.
