Leaving Goondiwindi early on a rather cool morning. Yes I laughed about the lack of clothes in my last post but really it has been chilly all the way up the road. There was ice on the windscreenas we began another day on the road with another 650 km to get to Rockhampton.
Quiet days drive no traffic to slow us down – taking the wheel in turns – every 2- 3 hours so we had restful times
Lunch came each day courtesy of my personal chef lol. Lots of places provide nice clean areas for travellers to pull off the road. Much more cheaper than stopping to buy all the time.
Journey’s end – Rockhampton, the beef capital of Australia!
This morning still chilly as we left for Mackay. It was good to know the roads were open – The newish electronic signs really stand out now.
There must have been loads of ‘horsey events ‘ going on this past weekend as we saw loads of horses on the road. I saw these at a big truck stop and could only get a quick shot because another very large truck was coming my way !
Leaving Mackay this is what tells me I’m nearly there – sugar cane as far as the eye can see . It’s cutting time!
Late Monday afternoon and it is definitely Journey’s End. I’ll sleep well tonight.

Wow, you’ve covered some territory! Enjoy the warm weather 🙂
Sugar cane, palm trees – definitely warmer there! Enjoy!
Sugar cane in Australia? Who knew? Lol.
Thanks for the lovely photos!
I suspect your personal chef provides much better food than most of the drive-by spots as well.
Enjoy your time in the sun.
What a big country and it looks a lot like the U.S. mainland.
Have a wonderful vacation, and get thyself nice and warm up there. 🙂
Driving on the opposite side of the road still spooks us though. What a wonderful time you’re having.
I love the beach ,x
