Cape York Trip 17 July 2017 – 21 August 2017

The Cape York adventure was every thing we could have imagined and then more. Excitement, joy, frights laughter and even some saucy language from Joanne. The adventure would not have been achieved without the involvement of Richard and Geoff, who we have to sincerely thank  for joining us on this part of our Australian journey. You guys were fantastic travelling companions we had some great conversations around the campfires and lots of laughs.
