My only niece is being married this Saturday at Airlie Beach, we are doing a road trip starting today. I will catch the train after work today to Caboolture (1 hour north of Brisbane) so we will be on the road by 4.30pm, we will drive to Gladstone for the first leg and hoping to arrive there between 10.30 - 11.00pm tonight. Stay the night with Rebecca (our daughter) and her partner, tomorrow (Friday) morning we will drive in separate cars to Airlie beach, we are hoping to be on the road by 7am for the second leg of our trip which should be another 6-7 hours. Kate (our eldest daughter) and her partner are en route as we speak, they are on a plane to Airlie Beach via Proserpine. Kate is one of her 5 bridesmaids and they are having a hens night tonight at Airlie. Rebecca and Drew will head back to Gladstone on Sunday, Kate and Josh will head back to Brisbane on Monday. Meanwhile Stephen and I have decided to turn the trip into a little holiday as we haven't been away for several years, we will stay till Wednesday. We will be doing some fishing, sight seeing and relaxing.
Here is a couple of maps for those of you who haven't heard of Airlie Beach and don't know where it is. It is quite a famous spot in Queensland and you can visit many coastal Islands from Airlie.
I have also found a few photos (through internet) to show you a little of the area.
I will post photos of our trip upon our return.
