After a morning tidying the van we decided to go have some lunch – but first an appetiser walk along Cardwell beach. The hills in the distance are part of Hinchinbrook Island.
Off to the big crab for lunch looking out over the Coral Sea. It’s 10 years since we stayed in Cardwell and it has grown a lot – cyclone Yassi caused a load of devastation but it has also in the long term benefitted the area with new sea walls and walks. Also the golf club benefitted because so many trees fell down and habitat of the endangered sugar glider was affected so the parks & wildlife helped replant & renew the course!!!!
After lunch we thought we’d take a look at the lookout we’d seen from the golf club. Here’s the view We noticed a walk from the Cardwell Lookout to the Hinchinbrook Channel Lookout. Off we went – 298 metres straight up 240 steps. Phew. Look at the views
We made it – and there was a seat at the top
Back down we went and drove to look at Dead Horse Creek? Fern treeBee Eater Kingfisher
Dead Horse Creek
then we went onto The Spa Pools
We’d planned a dip but as you can see – not enough water. Lovely day
Day of biscuit cooking!!! Passion fruit shortbreads, square Amaretti and ginger biscuits. Great for nibbling and sharing at golf.
one more day at Cardwell golf club tomorrow then off to Ingham. Hopefully catch up with Elizabeth & Robyn wh we met in Ceduna last year.
