Sep 18, 2017 - Cane Farm Experience

Monday Busy morning today after leaving Groper Creek we head into Home Hill once more to collect supplies before heading west of Home Hill to stay @ a Cane Farm for a few days. Finally, arrived after a near miss turn, the farm is beside a creek and the sites are in between mango trees - after the caretaker Leo gives us plenty of sites to pick from we finally settle in for the day.

After being stung by some severe camping fees because you have to pay for 2 extra people on the site even though they are two small boys, we decided to check out a donation camping spot on the coast. We went to a place at the mouth of the Elliot River which was on private property with the donation at the gate.
