THIS WEEK ON ALL 4 ADVENTURE…
The year got off to a strange start, but lockdown gave Jase and Simon plenty of time to dream up new vehicles and new adventure destinations. So the moment they were allowed to leave home, they hit the road for 1770 and took the back tracks out to Bustard Head. Ruts and washouts, slippery tracks and tight turns only added to the fun of being back off the beaten track.
With the morning tide, the boys set out on a tinny run to the old lighthouse and learn the history of the old beacon and the family who lived there.
This area is a renowned fishing destination, so they are eager to wet a line. And they are not disappointed with red throat emperor, chinaman and cod on the bite.
Later lunch is sorted with a Red Emperor Pie in Jase’s new CampBoss jaffle iron. In the words of taste-tester Simon, it was Jase’s “best cook-up to date”!
But it’s time to keep pushing west into the tableland where another old WWII plane wreck is waiting for them in the Kroombit Tops National Park. Though lost in 1945, the B-24 bomber Beautiful Betsy was only discovered by a park ranger 50 years later.
