“If any other Gargett’s get in a big hurry to find Gargett, Queensland. Uh, don’t..
I almost missed it. The lady at the general store said she had never met a Gargett and seemed pretty disinterested in meeting one really. Pretty much an Aussie pub/hotel and a couple businesses. That is it.
The good news is that Eungella National park nearby at the end of the valley is a nice park. I wish I had had time to go over the other side of the ridge into the outback. Looked interesting.
Mackay at the coast side of the valley looked like a neat town. No beaches or anything, but nice.
This area has had 2 major storms in the last year which reminded me of my visit there shortly after 9/11.”
