We left Yeppoon on Boxing Day and headed north to Mackay for our last stop before Townsville.
it was a great day to drive, there were very few cars on the road and we only had 3 trucks (road trains) pass us going south.
Mackay was like a ghost town with hardly a soul to be seen on the streets, No one out walking but we did find quite a few blokes with their kids fishing and lots of boats on the water
I had a massive sigh of relief when we entered our hotel room, it was just lovely and a vast improvement on the previous.
We did some geocaching here too, some great hides.
the quest mackay, a welcome change, lovely staff, gorgeous rooms & pool :)
