Gold Coast

Our holiday budget has just been blown out of the water, luckily not with a breakdown, but with a chance conversation with a caretaker at the Caloundra Caravan Park, we have upgraded the Holden Colorado with a late model Iveco Daily for our tow vehicle. We have been looking for a while, but an extremely well looked after light truck that was almost an exact match for what we were looking for, just popped out of nowhere. It hadn’t even been advertised anywhere. Some quick decisions were made, a deposit made. All I have to do now is get back to Tassie, get on a plane and fly back to Brisbane and drive my new toy 1800km back to Melbourne, another trip on the Spirit of Tasmania and a few modifications and we’ll be set for some camping in the Tassie summer.

Deal done.

We met up with Peter and Veronica again and went and checked out the local 5th wheeler seller.

I down for a finders fee if Peter and Veronica take one of these home.

We like to visit one big ticket item on the Gold Coast each year on the way home. This year we re off to the Outback Spectacular, we have been here before but there is a new show this year and we were not disappointed. No photos are allowed at the show, but we had a great feed and were thoroughly entertained with a fabulous show. If you ever get the chance, you will have a good time.

Tommorrow we head south, just a long day driving, goodbye Queensland, we have had a fantastic time mostly relaxing with some great weather, certainly warmer than back in Tasmania.
