From Rockhampton I was just heading north. A day of riding the slab for 750KM, to Townsville. Looking for warmers and sunnier weather!

Lots of signs warning or Fatigue and dangers of driving while Tired.

Reached the land of sugar cane fields!

More than a few stops for road works heading up the A-1. Know it was not the most scenic off road …… but was heading north.

Some dark clouds and a few passing showers on the way up the road!

Arrived Townsville late afternoon. Met up with RoaminRob and stayed at his place overnight. We were up early and took a great walk in his neighborhood before riding north to Cairns.

In the Tropics again!!

Sunrise! great way to start the day!

Always dangers here in Oz….

Sun was out most of the day!!

Traveling on a Saturday lead to lots of “grey Nomads” with there campers. (note the wheel cover on the back…. Guess I am Adventure after Dementia)
