Bundy to Airlie

AUSTRALIA | Sunday, 28 Oct 2007 | Views [499]

Well we survived the long haul from Bundaberg to Airlie beach, worth every "are we there yet" and millioneth pit stop along the way.  That stretch from Mackay to Prosperpine reminds me of my days outwest, lots of nothing in between and the ... Read more >
