Where I stayed
Palm Tree Caravan Park
What I did
Al had a shoot at the Hinchinbrook club,he caught up with some of the guys that shot at the Mt Isa Club.The Hitchinbrook Archery club is still recovering from Cyclone Yassi,they are slowly clearing the place from fallen trees.
The caravan park was nice,plenty of open space to walk the girls and the weather still around 25deg,so enjoying the nice days.
Now headed for Hervey Ranges,will keep you updated
Ingham (including Forrest Beach and Lucinda)
Major sugar growing and processing centre.
Located 111 km north of Townsville and 1482 km from Brisbane, Ingham is basically a sugar town. Set 29 km from the mouth of the Herbert River and 14 m above sea level the town is the administrative capital of the Hinchinbrook Shire.
Although the surrounding area supports beef cattle and a number of tropical crops it is sugar which clearly predominates. The flat lands between the coast and the mountains are criss-crossed with narrow gauge tramways which bring sugar into the crushing mills and Victoria Mill, which belches smoke into the hot tropical air during the cutting season, is reputed to be the largest sugar mill in the Southern Hemisphere.
