Sunday Oct 9 #

5 PM

Running 38:00 [3] 7.0 km (5:26 / km)

Spent a lot of today at the Holiday Park with Florence on the jumping pillows or in the pool. We also had a lovely lunch catch-up with Anthea and Gavin.

In the late afternoon I went for a run on cyclepaths up a valley then along some streets. I had planned 2min intervals but just felt shite and the run went up hill for the first half so I only managed three at the end of the run (instead of 8) and the pace was rubbish.

Saturday Oct 8 #

4 PM

Running 30:30 [3] 5.74 km (5:19 / km)

We went on a cave tour in the morning, then started our drive back to Cairns, stopping in Mareeba for lunch at Coffee Works. We ducked west again to visit Granite Gorge for a short walk and swim. Next we headed to Mareeba Wetlands where I ran around a bushwalk/loop the parks people had made for birdwatchers. It was like a cross country course, following blue streamers, and was fun although I was a little paranoid about snakes.

We then made our way to Cairns with a stop in Kuranda to see Barron Falls.

Friday Oct 7 #

8 AM

Running 40:00 [3] 7.15 km (5:36 / km)

I did a lovely morning run down beside 100 Mile Swamp out to Flat Rock. It was really peaceful there. I made a loop of it by coming back via the "Bush Walk" track.

We checked out of Undara and headed north to Chillagoe on about 100km of dirt road. Florence had a swim in the caravan park pool and then we did a walk at Balancing Rock. Next we looked around the historic smelters then headed to the local pub for a barbeque.

Thursday Oct 6 #


In the morning (after Florence's pool time of course!) we went on a bushwalk around an old crater rim, which was very pleasant. In the arvo after Florence's nap, we did the bluff walk behind the camp, cooked a quick dinner then went to the Jazz Night under the stars (we happened to be staying when this once-a-year thing was being held). They were so good! Then back to sleep in our train carriage accommodation. Undara is a really cool place!

Wednesday Oct 5 #


Drove up onto the tablelands to Undara (Volcanic National Park) with stops at Yungaburra, Mount Hypipamee National Park, Ravenshoe and Millstream Falls. In the evening we went on the sunset tour and Florence loved the help-yourself fruit and cheese platter!

Tuesday Oct 4 #

5 PM

Running tempo 32:00 [4] 6.5 km (4:55 / km)

Spent the morning in Cairns, and Florence had the best time in the massive swimming pool on the waterfront. In the afternoon we went for a walk to check out Crystal Cascades near our accommodation in Redlynch valley. I then did a run on the cyclepath up beside Freshwater Creek, with 20 mins at an honest pace.

Monday Oct 3 #
