Mt Warning

After months in QLD we  crossed the border back into NSW. Having been on the Gold Coast for a couple of weeks it was definitely time to change gears.

The Sunshine Coast

The Coast and National Park We tackled Noosa and surrounds by car, foot and bicycle. One could have even tackled it from the water.

First stop was Charleville – where we rested for a few days with the highlight being Charleville’s  renowned  Cosmos Astronomy Centre.
