Airlie Beach to Agnes Waters, Queensland
11.12.2012 - 11.14.2012 80 °F
After our sailing expedition, we are down to less than 2 weeks left in our Dusty Trail Adventures. Dang - time sure flies when you're having fun! So we have decided to beach bum our way back to NSW, driving a few hours every couple of days to maximize fun in the sun. We have spent the last few days holed up in a small beach town called Agnes Waters. We found a gem of a beachfront campsite, and explored both Agnes Waters and the adjoining town of Seventeen Seventy (named in honor of Captain Cook's brief landing here during his journey up the coast). As Lukin coined it on our way out of town, this small town had "everything you really need" - an IGA, a laundrette, some cafes, a bottle shop and of course, the local surf lifesaving club. Of note, we have entered possible surf areas as Agnes Waters is the northern most Queensland surf beach. Lukin is now living the search!
After a day on the beach, we are driving just a few hours south to Bargara this afternoon, another small beach town just east of famous Bundaberg (Bundy Rum anyone?!?). Lukin has stayed here briefly while working out of Bundaberg and has promised to show me the sites. We will most likely have to try a "dark and stormy" as well as the Bundy Rum & Coke on tap!! Jimmy Scott, Pugs, Nathan and Pete - I know you're mouth is watering...we'll cheers to you while we enjoy
- *ANIMAL UPDATE*** While camping at Agnes Waters, our most frequent visitors were inquisitive bush turkeys. This close to Thanksgiving, those turkeys looked ripe for the taking!
