Adelaide-Townsville-Adelaide


Planning on taking the X-Trail for a run probably late July (after school holidays?). Will have about 3 weeks for the trip but need to spend 3 - 4 days in Townsville visiting my parents. Just wondering if anyone has any hints or tips about route to take, places to avoid etc? Will have 2 drivers (wife and me, no kids or animals). Trip is mainly a break from work (I need it) and to visit elderly parents that we have not seen for some years. Will be staying at hotels/motels on the road. Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated, also would be good to meet up with some of the members on the way.

Re:


Hey Barney if you come thru Brisbane let us know and I am sure we can make a meet up for you!

I do know that Charleville has a great caravan park called Bailys caravan park and they have a really great camp oven night.

The only other thing I would do again is the scone and jam tour of the old pub there called the Caronas hotel where Qantas was truly born!

From there you could work your way up to Longreach then work your way to the coast up to Townsville!

Hope this helps you with some ideas!

Regards Scot

Re:


Thanks Scot, some good info there, will probably include Brisbane, either on the way up or back,wife has never been there and has been many years since I have seen it. Will send PM when we work out what we are doing, would be good to meet up. Main thing is to stay flexible and not get locked in to deadlines, supposed to be relaxing and unwinding. Just finished a major project last Friday, had the long weekend off, went to work Tuesday to be made redundant. Walked into a new job the same day but need some time away.

If the mobile internet works on the laptop will try to keep updated with where we are and where we are going, also, how the Exy behaves.

Re:


Day 1 was Adelaide to Cobar, day 2 Cobar to Charleville. Exy going like a dream, have managed to avoid all the wildlife so far but seen plenty of carnage on the road. Should have bought the model with climate control. Navman MY60 with latest maps has no idea where the Mitchell Highway is, keeps telling me to head for nearest road, very disapointed.

Re:


Have spent the last few days in Bushland Beach just north of Townsville catching up with family. Starting to head south tomorrow, Airlie Beach for a couple of days, do the 3 island cruise, then start heading for Brisbane / Gold coast by next weekend before heading back to Adelaide.

Re:


Heading from Airlie Beach to Rocky tomorrow then probably try to get to Noosa the next day, need to stop in at Bundy, Pam can drive after that stop. Probably going to stay on the Gold Coast for about 3 days, Pam wants to see Brisbane and I get a fishing charter. Not sure where Browns Plains is Scott but if we are passing near would be happy to meet up. I can be reached on 0xxxxxx.
