Let’s hit the road again. If you remember, Gladstone was the Second Stop on My Queensland Coast Road Trip and from there I headed 110 km further north to Rockhampton. So far on this road trip I had tried to avoid the Bruce Highway where possible, preferring back roads instead. Travelling from Gladstone to Rockhampton [...]

When a wine bar comes third in tripadvisor’s ‘Things to Do in Gladstone‘ list, you’ve got to start wondering if there is very much to do there at all. As you know, I was just passing through Gladstone during My Queensland Coast Road Trip. I only stayed a couple of hours, so I wasn’t really [...]

My journey from Bundaberg to Gladstone, at 216 km, was relatively short, but that allowed me enough time to stop off at a few places along the way.

Continuing my road trip, on Saturday morning I left Airlie Beach and headed further north. I was making my way towards Townsville, but I decided to build in a couple of stop offs along the way. The first, Hideaway Bay, required a detour, but the second, Bowen, was on my route. Bowen is a small [...]

My road trip continues. Yesterday evening I arrived at Airlie Beach as I continued to meander my way towards Cairns. Tomorrow morning I will be leaving Airlie Beach to head off to Townsville. My visit here is quite short, so there are a couple of things I definitely won’t be able to do for different [...]
