We left Airlie Beach on the Greyhound (my last one!) and drove to Townsville, where our friend Agnelle, who was on the New Zealand tour with us, picked us up. She took us to The Strand for fish and chips, and then we walked along the beach and pier. It was really nice having someone local to show us around, and even nicer going back to her house and sitting in a proper lounge! In the evening we met up with Angie again, and Tenielle, also from the Contiki trip, and went to a Mexican restaurant for dinner. They also took us up a massive hill to a lookout point so that we got a great view over Townsville.
