Since our last update quite a bit has happened.
As we put in our last entry we were waiting for the weather to pick up to go to Fraser Island, so we decided to stay on a peninsula called Inskip Point, big mistake!!
First when we arrive we saw that the sites were on the beach, great we thought, until we drove onto the wet sand and got stuck. Anna got out to push and luckly a kind man came over to help, and just 5 meters further we got stuck again, but Wayne managed to rock out with Anna pushing. At this point we were debating wether to stay the night, but as it was getting dark we thought we'd better stay and get on with tea. We decided to go to bed early as it was pitch black and had started spitting. About 10:30 we were woken by the most violent thunder storm we had ever heard, and as the rain was so terrential started to worry about being swept away off the narrow peninsula, and the campervan flooding.
After a sleepless night the rain was still pouring we scrapped trying to go to Fraser Island but still had to get the van off the peninsula without getting stuck, which we luckly managed!!
Brisbane was our next stop, where we treated ourselves to a paid campsite with running water!!! (mainly of the hot variety) We went into Brisbane for a few hours before getting a curry for tea and a good nights sleep, 10 hours!!
We are now at Byron Bay after a brief sunbathe at Surfers Paradise. We're hoping to catch the sunrise tomorrow morning on the beach.
