This morning we set off through Atherton to Mareeba, stopping at the Rocky Creek War Memorial on the way. In Mareeba we picked up Pam and headed north. After Mount Molloy, we turned off on to the relatively new sealed inland route to Cooktown via the Mulligan Highway. We stopped at Bob's Lookout and then had lunch at The Palmer River Roadhouse. After lunch, we continued north, stopping at another lookout before passing Lakeland and heading to the Annan River Gorge, The Lion's Den pub on the road to Helenvale, Black Mountain, and the bridge over the Big Annan River.

After a rest at the Seaview Motel in Cooktown, we headed to Seagren's for dinner, where we chatted to some of the crew of the Duyfken, a replica of a 17th century sailing ship which was on its way back to Fremantle. We were all in bed very early..
