Queensland Roadtrip Pt 3 – Cooktown

One of the attractions we wanted to see was actually situated before reaching the coastal town of Cooktown.

Roadtrip – Surrey to Nth Yorkshire Pt 2

After our second night staying at the Tankersley Manor, which by the way is a very convenient place to explore The Peak District, without the high price of staying inside that area. It was time to leave South Yorkshire and head further North. From south to north, has been a regular trip over the years… Continue reading Roadtrip – Surrey to Nth Yorkshire Pt 2
