DAY 2 ( queen Charlotte track ).

Had a very pleasant stay at miners camp with our tent pitched in an old orchard with lots of pesky Weka’s casting beady covetous eyes on our bright and shiny bling. The owner , Graham , is a great host and he cooked us both dinner and breakfast the following morning. A cold southerly came thru in the afternoon and the temp plummeted. After the recent heatwaves this came as a surprise but made for great sleeping weather .

We set off for our short day 2 walk to Camp Bay , only an 11 km walk and easy gradient all the way.

This old tractor near miners camp reminds me of my right knee , ie pretty old and absolutely buggered , but like Barb I still manage a smile


The views as the track now continues on the southern coastline of Endeavour inlet continue to reward. It becomes an easy stroll with hardly any bumps. Camp Bay could be seen just over the water but the most direct route ( 2 kms by boat ) not possible. A meandering coastal walk finally had us at the camp site .

Our campsite at Camp Cove – nice spot with a clothes line set up for drying our kit . Nice thing about this campsite is that it is only a very short walk over to Punga Cove resort that has special comfy chairs over a lovely water view from the wharf and whatever tipple you may fancy .
