After a super hot night at Smalleys Beach (just above Mackay) we decided to "last minute.com" a backpackers in Hervey Bay to try and get out of the heat a bit.
(Boy couldn't stay asleep because he was sweating like a small pig.)
When the heat broke and it started to rain about 3am we finally got a little rest before getting up the next morning.
We packed up the gear nice and early before it got too hot to move. ( 8 am and it was all-ready heating up again)
Went down to the beach to have a paddle
And look at the gorgeous view.
Then Headed off to Hervey Bay to stay at the Woolshed.
When we arrived we took a walk to find some good nosh and stumbled across
Cafe Tapas which offered a selection of simple but EXTRA yummy tapas.
We were well satisfied with our quick visit to Hervery Bay.
And super thankful for the cheap accommodation which included a fan! (and a resident gecko)
Next stop Brisbane.
