What’s red and black with scales and feathers?

Sunday 13 June, we finally reach Queensland and the temperature increases a notch or two – seriously – it creeps above 20ºC not long after we cross the border, which is most welcome after the cool days and cold nights at Mt Warning.

We briefly head up the Gold Coast Hwy but after getting bogged in the traffic, we return to the M1 to continue the journey to the Sunshine Coast, to meet our friends Kate, Giles, Jordan, Mardae and Bitz.

Before we arrive at our friends’, we do an overnight stop in Jowarra Park to be greeted the next morning by a brush turkey pecking at our shoes and a red-bellied black snake just behind the camper-trailer – nothing like wildlife on your doorstep!
