We did it! Brunswick Heads to Coolangatta

As we left Brunswick Heads, bargain hunters were already trawling for bargains at garages around the town.

We had a dream run to Kingscliff in glorious weather. In Chinderah, we stopped to let a 200 strong fleet of members of the American Motorcycle Club of Australia pass through.

We arrived in Kingscliff at 11.30am and were determined to finish our challenge today.
We dropped off the trailers at our motel and headed for Tweed Heads/Coolangatta.

There we booked in at a motel for Monday and located a bike shop nearby for bike boxes. These should be available on Tuesday.

We'll stay in Kingscliff until the Cooly Rock festival finishes, then we'll return to Coolangatta and make arrangements to fly home.

Feeling very satisfied and happy.
Did 70kms today.
