After a trip to Woolies and groceries on board we headed out of town to a free camp at Macrossan Park. Now this place is quite nice it has a large grassed area with the Burdekin river passing down below and flushing toilets and cold showers. Flushing toilets is like a 4 star hit for the kids. When we arrived there was a sign saying no swimming because of crocodiles, we were all excited by this maybe we would get our first croc sighting, but alas the sign is there to cover the locals just in case in the big wet a croc travels upstream. However none of us were keen to have a swim even though it was very hot.
It was here that we received some Grey Nomad love with three of our neighbours engaging in very long conversations with us on many occasions, our back neighbours Ray and Judy from Nowra got us and the kids playing a game called Finske, however not much more will be said about that because Rosalee won! It had been enjoyable until then.
We stayed two nights here and focussed on school work with the kids and knocked most of it off so that we could have one free day when we head in to Townsville.
