Returned to Mareeba for service to vehical. Stayed in Mareeba Riverside Caravan Park. Terrible!! Some real down and outs live here! Dirty sites, noisy and uncomfortable! Not a place with much to recommend it.
Serice was done efficiently and well. We wanted a cb radio installed which needed to be done the following morning, so rather than stay another night at Riverside, we opted to camp again at Granite Gorge, where although the facilities are poor the site we used both times as secluded and private. We swam in the waterhole, which was cold but refreshing after another hot day walking the main street of Mareeba.
