Now that we are back with mobile and internet coverage we have stopped overnight in Home Hill leaving just a short drive into Townsville this morning. We decided on only a short drive for yesterday so that when we reach Townsville we can head out shopping soon after we set up with the whole afternoon available to us,

We met some of our neighbours who are also heading north and will likely be stopping at the same caravan park in Townsville on their way to Cooktown as are we.

While in Home Hill we did just a little bit of shopping at the IGA supermarket and a bottle shop. The weather is definitely starting to warm up as we turned on the air-conditioning last night, on cool for the first time.
