The final map! Taree to Kew

Glorious weather! Flat, easy cycling! What more can I say?
We decided that, in lieu of a very overdue rest day, we'd have a short cycle today to allow for a bit of relaxation and planning in the afternoon.

Kew is a sleepy little settlement with a garage, pub, general store, motel and a spacious, well manned information centre. Kew's claim to fame is that a famous aviatrix, Nancy Bird Walton, was born here in 1915.

Del spent the afternoon studying our last remaining area map - Merimbula to Tweed Heads - and working out stopovers.

We have decided to avoid cycling into Brisbane because of the heavy city traffic. Instead we are contemplating finishing our ride in the Gold Coast at Coolangatta for the convenience of finding accommodation, bike shops (for bike boxes), and airport within close proximity of each other.

The end is in sight!

Did 46kms today.
