    Tillis. went to Wreck Rock on the weekend. Went in from the Agnes side. You'll make it easy. Was a doddle in the syncro with a bit of air out of the tyres.
    Let me know what Cape Hillsborough is like. Haven't been there yet.

    All you have to do is ask and stipulate only brand specified.

    Parked at Rosslyn Bay to take the ferry to Keppel



    Keppel Island is magical...go there!



    a local artist painted these stones along the trails that cross the island



    the place is timeless and mystical if you get away a bit but the camping village is fun too...our tent... WP_20200703_08_58_19_Pro.jpg WP_20200706_07_16_21_Pro.jpg WP_20200706_07_42_29_Pro.jpg WP_20200706_11_27_54_Pro.jpg

    I just thought you scored a “3 photos for the price of 1” deal at the chemist, when you put the camera film roll in for developing....:rolleyes:

    Great trip Tillis. We walked to the lighthouse on GKI on a hot day two years ago. No shade down there.
