Burrum Heads – Boreen Point

Sunday 29th March 2015

We said farewell to Elaine and drove on to explore the area south of Hervey Bay – Poona,  Boonooroo and Tin Can Bay.  Futher on we found a great little campground at Boreen Point on Lake Cootharaba.  We spent the afternoon relaxing on the white sandy beach before walking up to the local historic pub – Appolonian Hotel.  Originally it was a hotel built in Gympie during the gold rush days and was recently moved to Boreen Point and restored.  We enjoyed a couple of drinks and a great meal.  The front lawn was the size of a cricket field and that’s what all the local kids were doing.
