Our three days in Townsville up, we packed up the van and set off to drive the 280 km to Airley Beach. We thought we’d arranged to leave the van at the Camperman office in Airley Beach but as soon as we saw the tiny yard at the back of a small office on the very busy Main Street we knew this was going to be a non-starter. And so it proved. We carried on another 11 km to Shute Harbour where the Sunsail base is. There are two public car parks there so we decided we’d leave the van there. After checking in with Sunsail we returned to Airley Beach and checked in to the Seabreeze Tourist Park where we were shown to our site by a droll Yorkshireman. Handily, there is a nice looking Chinese restaurant right next door so a delicious takeaway is on the menu for dinner tonight.
