Sunday the 11th we drove around Mackay and headed direction Pinneacle a place about 55 Klm west of Mackay decided to have lunch at the pub there. It seems that they have the best pies there as it was told in a caravan magazine so the best way is to find out ourself.
Nice drive to get there and what a cane fields around Mackay its just unbelievable all you see is canefields - canefields.
Around May is the harvesting or what they call it here the "Cane Crush"
Arrived around 12.30 at the pie shop - pub and ordered our bacon-mushroom pie with peas and mashed potatoes, was all oke but have eaten nicer pies. It was very busy and the feller behind the bar told us that they get around the 300 people for pies on Sundays.
After our meal and drink back to Mackay to have a look at caravan parks, our plan is to stay and work for a while in Mackay.
We did find one in Andergrove its a big caravan park and looked allright.
Booked a spot and will go there on Wednesday the 14th March.
Same week we headed out to Balls Beach - Haliday Bay and Cape Hillsborough, its only about 10K drive from Seaforth.
These are all small places with a couple of homes we stopped at a park on the beach at Cape Hillsborough and had our lunch there.
After lunch we walked the beach its a lovely beach with all big Lava Rocks not the best time to make photo,s very overcast and looks like we might get rain.
We spotted coming of the beach a tree and attached to it was a first aid kit with bottles of vinegar which you can use if you,ve been attacked by a blue bottle jelly fish.
Zelfde week zijn we wat aan het verkennen gegaan rondom Mackay, wat ons verbaast is hoeveel suikerbiet velden hier zijn duizenden kilometers ervan. In de maand Mei is de oogst ervan.
De foto,s hier boven zijn gemaakt op het strand 10 Klm bij ons vandaan waar we in Seaforth op de camping staan.
Veel lava rots een heel mooi gezicht echt een plaatje waard om er op te staan.
