Another beautiful day around 20 degrees. We left Shelley Beach at 10:30. The day started with a downhill walk, past a waterfall, then over stepping stones on the Elliott River. We then had a steep climb which was the hardest part of the day. There were no beach walks today and most of the day was spent walking through beautiful tall trees. It was very quiet without even much bird noise. Stopped for lunch at the intersection of Parker and Johnson tracks.
We finished the day at 2:10 on the beach where there were quite a few people, the first we had seen all day. On the way back we stopped to look at koalas by the side of the road. Lots of European tourists all over the road. One was actually up in the tree taking a photo!
We headed back to our accommodation for the rest of the week. The cottage is wonderful with a lovely view out over the paddocks and Johanna Beach.
