Headed back to Murwillumbah and found our Van in one piece as they had also experienced a storm the night before. That evening we rolled the awning in and more or less had things ready for an early start the next day.
Set off early next morning as wanted to get ahead of the traffic as we headed for Hervey Bay. Had a great run before stopping at the Burpengary Service Centre for a much needed coffee. Upon joining the M1 the traffic was very slow going, crawling our way along in places. Going through Gympie was particularly slow due to traffic lights and kms of one lane roads. Another major delay was coming into Tiaro where the pedestrian lights banked the traffic up for kms. Finally arrived at Susan River where we stayed for the next 2 weeks - great to catch up with friends here again.

Weather was very humid, so the pool was frequently visited! For the first few days a storm came through late afternoon which reminded us of Darwin weather. New Years Eve was a terrific night and after the rained stopped we were able to sit outside and enjoy a great evening, finally going to bed around 2am! Plenty of music and celebrations were had with a wonderful group of people. During our stay I played golf each morning while Helen joined in the water aerobics. Enjoyed a few games of darts and finska and had plenty of chats and laughs. Met up with Lynn and Janice for lunch at the Howard Pub and had a great meal. Also had Sunday dinner at the Sportsman's Club in Maryborough - fish and chips $5. I celebrated my birthday during our stay and Helen organised a birthday cake for morning tea, and with the blowing out of the candle the group sang Happy Birthday! Unfortunately had not anticipated the number of people so very, very small pieces of cake were handed out!!! Helen and I went to Goody's On The Beach at Toogoom and had a nice lunch overlooking the sea.

Even has a jetty in front of the restaurant to walk out on after lunch.
