Had a flat, fast ride along the Clarence and Richmond Rivers today. Took
us through sugar cane country - vast plantations at various stages of
growth. The cropping season is just starting. We spotted trucks and
trailers laden with fresh sugar cane heading for the local refinery.
Arrived in Ballina around 3.00pm.
The Richmond River meets the sea at Ballina, which is famous for its prawns. A giant sized prawn welcomes everyone to the city.
