Saturday 28th September - Tully HeadsSunny weather with a top of 29.2 and down to 19.7 overnight. Clive thought he would walk to the beach which he thought was just down the road. Well it was just under 1.5km. He went for a walk along a path they have done, again with information boards explaining about various things in the area. The total walk ended up being 3.9km. they have a small markets on in the pub ground today with mainly local things including honey and crafts. There is a drive just north of Tully that takes in some beaches so we thought we would have a look at this. We first went into Tully to have a look at the Golden Gumboot. This represents the amount of rain they had in 1950 being 7.9m. Now that's a lot of water. A drive down the main street and cars everywhere. Well it is a Saturday and who knows what time the shops will shut. Turning off the Bruce Highway about 20km North of Tully we start the scenic drive, First it's off to Bingil Bay. This is quite a pretty bay and we spot a mosaic tile monument of a sting ray. Driving past Wongaring Beach we head to Mission Beach. This is a lovely part of the coast with beautiful blue seas and islands in the distance. At Mission Beach you can see Dunk Island just offshore. There are two caravan parks here and there are lots and lots of vans in them. Looks like sardines in paradise. Following the coast the road then heads back to the Bruce Highway. We decided to stop into the information centre but this is closed and next door is a craft shop. We ended up buying 2 hand towels and a tea towel. The countryside is so green and lush compared to what we have seen so far.
