Rob got up and did a 5 km hike in the morning to some more waterfalls while I changed the dressing on my knee. It's a mess and not healing ... still bleeding. Then we bolted out of the campsite because the biting flies had woken up.
Fortunately the road to Innisfail was mainly downhill so I didn't have to pedal all that much. We rode through more rainforest and stopped at some more waterfalls and a lookout. By the way, the rainforest smells wonderful - it has this sweetish scent to it. I'm not sure if that is one particular plant or a bunch of them.
Then we popped out of the rainforest onto rolling hills and farmland - again some very beautiful scenery all backed by Queenslands highest mountain off to the left.
We stopped at a roadside stand for some sweet bananas because we hadn't had breakfast. Sweet bananas are very good! They are smaller than regular ones but also sweeter and a bit juicier without being rubbery.
Then we stopped in Innisfail for lunch and continued on out to Tully. The road to Tully was very flat, but also not well sheltered from the sun and so was very hot - my thermometer read 36 degrees. We stopped a number of times to get something to drink and cool off. In one of the places we stopped, I saw myself in the mirror for the first time in a couple days ... YIKES!! I looked a mess!!
In Tully we camped in a nice campground. Tully's slogan is "A pretty wet place" and they have a huge golden gumboot in their park. In 1950 they set an Australian record for rain - 7.9 metres that year!! It did not rain when we were there but was very hot and humid.
