Journal Entry:
Set off reasonable early. I took the scenic route along the coast back to Rockhampton. The beaches looked like they'd be nice on a warm day - but it's a bit gray and definitely not warm out right now. From Rockhampton it was straight south on the Bruce Highway and then east to Bundaberg. My only goal was to see the rum distillery (worshiped by Australians everywhere). I couldn't find it! After half an hour of trying to follow directions I got to the parking lot. Another ten minutes was spent trying to find the reception (it was right in front of me the whole time). I got there twenty minutes after the last tour left. I looked around the shop, walked around the distillery on the outside, and headed out a little disappointed. Pulled into Hervey Bay sometime after dark.
