We departed Townsville this morning and travelled north with the usual stops: Frosty Mango for a sorbet; then Cardwell for lunch at the Giant Crab. After lunch we walked back along the foreshore overlooking Hinchinbrook Island to where the car and caravan were parked.

It was then only a sort drive to Cowley Beach where we parked the caravan backing onto the beach. It is currently very windy so we have not put the awning up. We have gone for a short explore of the beach and can see that it is about 7 km long.

We don’t know what we will be able to do as there are showers forecast for the next week both here and where we will be staying at Tolga in the Atherton Tablelands.
