Wednesday 4th May 2005, (Bagara).

We are now at Bundaberg having arrived yesterday. We have chosen a park at Bargara about 14k east of Bundaberg on the coast. This seems a very nice park and we are already talking about staying here for a second week instead of going to Rainbow beach or Noosa, but time will tell. Linda has a reasonably variety of shopping within a few minutes walk, and any type shopping at Bundy.

I am a little disappointed with TV reception here. Transmission comes from Maryborough, a fair way away, but my research indicated signal should be very good. There is a large tree in line with reception that could be affecting it, but one analogue channel is almost non-existing. Digital reception is acceptable with a strong signal level and good quality, but quality intermittently drops to a level to cause distortion, again it may be the trees?

It is very noticeable lately that we are back on the coast with having regular rain. This is a change for us, as we haven’t seen any since we left the far south coast of the big island.
