The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 30 Townsville, Queensland, Au

Townsville lives up to its reputation as being hot and humid as we go walkabout to find both Willmett Street and the Willmett's Building (more about the Willmett family printing business here ) that carry the name of hubby's relatives. Visited the beautifully tropical ANZAC Gardens and Belgian Gardens Cemetery on family history trail.

After a tasty lunch at Bistro One, we pop into the Townsville Maritime Museum to meet John Weir - a relative and expert on the Willmetts of Townsville. We visit the West End Cemtery and book into the Lakes Holiday Park which has ensuite toilet & shower.

We enjoy a lovely dinner with John & Nell at the West End Hotel.
