1770

We stayed in 1770 for one night on our way home from Airlie Beach so we didn't get to do a lot of things there but I can tell you about what we did get up to. You can click on the link HERE for more information about 1770.

We were in our caravan on this trip so we stayed at one of the caravan parks in the area - Captain Cook Caravan Park.  It was a bush setting and the beach was a walkway away so it was in a good spot.  

We headed along the coast road and visited the spot where Captain James Cook first landed in Australia. 




We then drove a bit further along (until we couldn't drive any further) and came to a lovely walk that took us to the Joseph Banks Conservation Park and lookout.  It was sunset by the time we got there.  The scenery was beautiful and you could see the boats coming in.






After dark we were treated to a really great experience.  A couple of possums came down to visit near our caravan sites.  They were so friendly and we fed them a few bits of fruit.  The kids got to feed and pat them and they didn't even seem bothered by the flash of the camera.  I'm sure they are very well fed possums and visit plenty of campers on their travels.  They were super cute and really made our day.







And to finish our day off we had a little play around with some sparklers.  You know it is not easy writing or drawing with a sparkler so that it turns out in a photo.  We did have a lot of fun trying though, this was the best go we had, Emma with her heart.



Notes:  
* We payed $51 a night for our powered caravan site.  
* The caravan park has a really good Indian Restaurant on site for dine in or take away.  We got take away and it was delicious!
