Friday 11th May 2012, Beerwah QLD.
As short as it was, that is the end of my travels, as I can see, until the end of the year. I have arrived at Beerwah, half way between Caboolture and Maroochydore on Steve Erwin Way only a couple of kilometres from the Australia Zoo. The caravan park here is on, and part of, a farm, as in the name ‘Gowinta Farm’ that grows pineapple and strawberry as far as I can see at this early stage. I had another rather long leg today of 440K and am glad this past week is over, I have come from Melbourne to here in four of these long legs and I have no idea how some people even older than I make the similar trip with only one overnight stop. Whenever I do make the trip in future it will definitely be no quicker than I did do it this week, I guess the main thing was that I did have a day break between trips. I now have until Wednesday to set up fully and familiarise myself with the district and the rail system that I intend using to travel to my place of voluntary work in Brisbane.
