Sugar cane, Bruce Highway roadworks and family catch-up

Leaving Townsville, we followed the Bruce Highway, Queensland, Australia south past fields of sugar cane and narrow gauge trains carrying the cane to mills.

It was hard to find a spot to pull over for a break as the highway is undergoing extensive roadworks, meaning that rest spots were often closed and that traffic was channelled into one lane.

We were delighted to arrive here at my cousin Kerrie’s and to catch up with her, husband Tom and family and friends and be entertained royally in the tropical paradise that they call home.
