    Mate the weather in Townsville and Far north Queensland is truly glorious this time of the year. Cyclones long gone.

    Calm clear days with lovely sunshine. Top of the season now.

    Enjoy yourself. Go to Maggie Island hire a Moke and piss around there for the day.

    Great day out on a nice day.

    At sea level you will be fine. The ocean is an enormous heat sink
    But up in the mountains : freezing !

    How high are the mountains there? Cold like 5-10 degrees up there?

    Yes. Plus, tonight's weather report says the cold will produce frosts as far North the Atherton tableland till Wednesday.

    Not even in the mountains, too....just go inland, away from the ocean and you will be quite surprised at how cold it will be.

    Ok so far I have been to the strand, reef HQ, cotters market and billabong sancturary. I havenr yet been to magnetic island. But I feel like I'm running out of places to visit here. Any other suggestions? I have to say people here are really friendly. I like them.

    I did manage to find some Thai people and restaurants in the ville but they are so expensive and may not be authentic

    I would love to have a car but I would imagine servicing and maintenance would cost a bomb. But the roads look like they are easy to drive.

    As an alumnus of Nelly Bay School (not the same time as Julian Assange), I can recommend a trip to Magnetic Island. The school was a one room, one teacher school then. My scholastic career almost came to an end when the drunk prick of a teacher expelled me in Grade 1 but luckily I was able to continue at Central State School in North Ward, Townsville.

    As kids we often went swimming at Bluewater (also on the map above), which was closer than Crystal Creek and warmer water and, you will no doubt guess, is blue.

    good for you that there were no salties at bluewater. there is a huge one lurking somewhere between magnetic island and the strand and they haven't been able to catch him

    I moved from the old school to the prison site when it opened. Must have been around '54 or '55. There is a bit about it here: 11 May 1953 - NEW SCHOOL RISING ON OLD PRISON SITE Story Of Pr...

    I snogged/fondled/stuff the ugliest girls I've ever got hold of in Townsville.

    I was pissed in one of these nighclubs that had foam parties and I ended up snogging this girl who looked a bit like this:



    Then I went to the loo, came back and found her again, got back into the 'lovin', but upon further inspection, she looked more like this:



    Then I noticed the original one staring at me, turns out they were sisters. Anyways, to cut a long story short, they invited me back to their place for some shagging, but I noticed a group staring at me:



    ...turns out the whole family were there. I decided not to take up on the offer...

    Townsville was a big big drinking/party town when I was there, erm, back in 1994 or so.
    How do I post these pictures???

    That sounds like some supernatural story in the making.
