A couple of weekends ago we spent the day in Eungella National Park, which is in the Pioneer Valley about 80kms west of Mackay. Firstly we set off on a couple of kilometer walk through the rainforest to Finch Hatton Gorge. Along the way we saw a 1.5m long goanna - who was not fazed by us at all and continued waddling across the path. By the time we made it to the waterfall we were ready for a swim! And were refreshed by the fresh river under the waterfall
On the 20th of Oct we dolled ourselves up and went the Mackay races. Which was a big day in Mackay despite the fact all the horses have been struck down with the flu and there was no actual races. It was still a great day with Fashions in the field contest and some betting on the Caulfield cup and Ascot.
This weekend we went up to Airlie beach with one of our house mates Kirstie. On Saturday we wet Ocean Rafting around the Whitsunday Islands. The weather was beautiful and the scenery spectacular as our raft scooted us around the islands. In the morning we wet to the Hill inlet and lookout at Tongue Bay where we got a spectacular view of Whitehaven Beach. After relaxing on the pristine beach and a buffet lunch it was off for an afternoon snorkeling. The boat stopped at two places - Mantaray Bay and Maureens Cove
Well now back into another week of work and planning our next adventure. Hope you enjoy the photos
