Hitting the Highway

Road ahead – quick update from Ken Roberts on Vimeo.

Over the last few months the blog’s featured Cyclone Yasi, crocodiles, koalas, cane toads and encounters with local media. Together with some of the more interesting characters I’ve met on my travels. All in Far North Queensland, high up on Australia’s east coast. The Wet Tropics. The acclimatisation phase. Preparing for the journey down to Sydney, then on to Melbourne.

Over the next few weeks the story of the road south will unfold. The journey west up into the high hinterland. A brief detour into a region known as the Atherton Tablelands. Tropical storms. Through the towns of Kuranda, Mareeba, Atherton, Herberton and Millaa Millaa. Before returning to the coastal Bruce Highway at Innisfail.

Then it’s south along the eastern seaboard through the cyclone hit coastal communities of Mission Beach, South Mission Beach, Tully and Cardwell. Tales of sheltering in ditches, Prince William. And some of the interesting characters I inevitably bump into. Then on to Ingham. Mostly camping. Next Townsville and a few days staying with an Aussie family. Before returning to the road.
