Innisfail, out and about.

Arrived at Innisfail River Drive CP on Sunday and booked in for a week, you get a discount when staying 7 days or more.  I like this park for its amenities, river view and closeness to town but the road can be a bit noisy.  The town has most everything you may need.

Caught up with my bicycle buddy and planned a tour of nearby national parks for the following week as well as a day tour or two around the Innisfail area.

We rode out to Ella Bay then back to have lunch at Flying Fish Point.  A nice scenic ride with light traffic and only a couple of hills.  It was overcast and there were showers about but managed to stayed dry.  An outing in the car later in the week to Etty Bay, Mena Creek, Paronella Park and South Johnson was very pleasant.

On Saturday I rode out to Wangan and the Innisfail airfield.  Watch some sky drivers and cane cutting.  Rode back with a tail wind, always nice.

Getting ready to hit the road again, tomorrow.
