      WW2 trail

      August 22, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

      We pushed our alarm back an hour today, but Ben was still stirring beforehand. Another cruisy day ahead. We went through our laundry from the day before last, the rain came through before we had a chance to go through it all and put it away properly. Slow packup and headed for Bamaga. We found the Bakery which a lot of people hype up, got ourselves a crocodile pie and a regular sausage roll to share. They were pretty good! We followed the hema to do the ww2 trek today. We found 2 plane wrecks and a fuel dump site which took us a bit to realise was a historic location and not people just dumping a heap of 44 gallon drums. We looped back and headed for Muttee Head. The track kept going to the Jardine River mouth where it flows into the Arafura Sea, so we followed it and found a nice spot to stop and cook up some noodles. Back on the soft, sandy track to Muttee Head and the WW2 radar. We had to put the maxtrax to use for their intended purpose instead of levelling the ute out at campsites. We went through a large, soft patch, I smacked my head on the handle and we got stuck. Ben got us sorted though and we were moving in no time. Good thing he attached the lanyards, he couldn't see the little ones at all. We found the ww2 radar, the only one standing on the mainland. A quick drive by Muttee Head, looks like a lovely camping spot. We headed back via Injinoo, just to have a look. They have construction going on near the beach to create a picnic area, otherwise its very much a local town.Read more
