More on offer at Agnes than a reef

HI all, last year we spent the cooler months travelling north Queensland, so being camped up at Agnes Water is such a pleasant experience, especially with that early morning chill in the air.

Caravanning the Queensland coast

HI all, we’ve only just started this adventure and already it’s had a great impact on my personality and thought patterns. The rigidity of time schedules and limitations have simply disappeared into nothingness. We left our home thinking of all the places we’d discover, but who would have believed the main discoveries would be internal and in such a small …

new home away

MUCH needed rain flushed out many of our local creeks and river systems, which means mud crabs, and a few monsters turned up in the Noosa River system – fantastic!
