The map shows the route and if the top right is a bit confusing, I apologise, we actually visited Cairns on the final leg of the trip, if that helps.

Hottest place: Could be a tie for first place; Adelaide or Alice Springs ...or maybe Karratha ...no, no could have been Cossack. It was Adelaide where, stupidly, we had left the thermometer in the car whilst we took the bus into town. The poor thing had a max, temperature of 60 degC and it burst leaving little shards of glass and a pong of alcohol. 40 degC was commonplace. But it's a price we willingly paid to see the countryside.
