Monday 24th October 2016


We farewelled Cairns in the best way possible.... breakfast on the beach! Well, at the beach shack that we found yesterday.

An unexciting trip back to Canberra; the traffic was crazy mad when we left Sydney Airport, but other than that everything went smoothly. Geoff even got a meat pie for dinner when we stopped at the Heatherbrae's Pie Shop in Sutton.

Arriving into Sydney

Sydney Airport sign... Seriously...  it's
only October

Dusk in the ACT

No surprise, but it was much cooler at Sydney when we left the terminal. Then we tackled the afternoon traffic. Hmmm. I don't know why road designers insist on putting stupidly undersized access points on to major roads. Accessing the M5 from Sydney Airport had 2 lanes turning onto the motorway under the control of traffic lights that allowed only a few vehicles time enough to turn, while being hindered by a lane of severely backed-up traffic from the opposite direction trying to merge into the same space on the M5 access lane, which then dwindled to one lane. So 3 very busy lanes merged into one lane, very badly. Did nobody think that this may be a bloody obvious choke point?
