Bowling Green was hot – our first day over 30. We had a dip in Alligator Creek, which the guide book assured us, was not named after its inhabitants. We saw turtles and lots of fish, but no crocs. But when the sun started to go down out came the wallabies and pademelons.
Bowling Green National Park is just South of Townsville. The country is changing as we move North, but some things stay the same, like the 2000km or so of sugar cane with kites (er the birds, not the toys) hovering above.
