We stopped at Cardwell for one night to do our laundry and have a good hot shower. The Cardwell Van Park had been recommended to us, at $30  it was a bit more expensive than we usually paid but we had a week of free or cheap camps so decided to spoil our selves. It was worth it the showers were fantastic…

The neighbouring couple were very friendly and were already well into “happy hour” when we pulled in. They invited us to join them and gave Jack a rum and coke. Well it was 8pm before we left them to get our dinner and between them and Jack they had polished off a whole bottle of rum. Every one was very happy and mellow.

 Barry and Helen where from the Goldcoast and even though Helen had recently had a hip operated on and had cancer 2 years ago she was not going to let that stop her travelling. They had been on the road almost 2 years. What a great positive outlook they had.

Next day it was onto WWOOFing

We wwoofed for Peter and Beryl 15 years ago and have kept in touch with Christmas cards over the years and were really looking forward to getting back in touch. Their farm is in the Upper Murray valley, a very picturesque area. It was hugs all round when we arrived and we quickly settled into their routine of approx 4 hours work each morning. Jack helping on the banana plantation and I helped Beryl around the house. We stayed for 6 days. I have put together a slide show of things we did in that time…
