FIRST DAY – Coolum Beach

Crawelled our way up the coast with peak hour hordes streaming out of Brisbane. Arrived in Coolum just on dark, so decided a meal and beer in the surf club would be a good idea.

Got up early to take some photos on the beach. There were lots of dogs and humans playing with tennis balls and sticks.

Even a strange two legged spaniel

We left Coolum and headed away from the coast.  Taking the back roads on the western side of the mountains to avoid the traffic. All was well until we set up camp and the temperature dropped to around minus seven degrees.

We did, however, find where the wheel was invented. Not in ancient Greece or Rome, but in a paddock out the back of Gayndah, Queensland

Wooden Wheel

I think the tyre was a later refinement.

  1. Hi John n Dianne,
    Thanks n enjoyed reading the blog……. Midge Point and The Elliott were part of our old stomping grounds when we lived in Bowen……..huts galore in the old days. And the bloody biting insects…Have added it to my favourite, but give me a reminder to read it when you add to it.
    Had a just another bizzare big evening out with R n R at John Fish’s mansion- it’s a soulless place- Heaps of blank walls that need your paintings, I might add…on Sovereign Island last night.
    We know Nikki Hudson, ex captain of Hockeyroos, his new girlfriend and she was celebrating her 34th birthday…..she said to ask whoever we wanted…..that place is so ridiculously big that it needs mega people …….had a bit of a head stinger today, that a lunch at Sanctuary Cove did a bit to fix….
    Have a great trip.
    Luv Denise n Lachxx
