Cape York 2014 - Archer River to Cairns

After filling up the car at $2.25 per litre we headed south. The aim for today was to get as far south as possible.

We stopped at Laura Roadhouse for lunch. As it was Amanda's birthday we had a treat of hot chips.

Lunch at Laura Roadhouse

As we rolled into Mareeba a decision was made to head for Cairns so that we could catch up with the Percy's who were still there waiting for the Jeep to be repaired. Light rain and big day driving meant we were reluctant to have to set up the tents. The search was on to find a cabin to stay instead. Five phone calls later we found somewhere with vacancies. As we drove through the Big 4 in Cairns we turned heads - the car definitely needed a wash.

A quick shower and we headed into town to have dinner out with the Percy's. This was a nice way to celebrate Amanda's birthday as well.
