Having settled up at the motel we left Bundaberg with a strong recommendation from the manager to stop at Mammino’s ice cream parlour at Childers, and it was certainly worth it. On arrival the parlour wasn’t open yet but a little old lady came out to say that the girls who run it would open for us and to wait. It turned out that she was Mrs Mammino, one of the founders of the business, and she chatted until it opened telling us about her family and that she had thought that we were her long lost relatives expected that day from Sydney. The ice cream certainly lived up to expectations so next time you are in Childers give yourself a treat..
We arrived at Maroochydore to meet Don, now on his own, at the apartment we had booked for the two nights here. After catching up we went for a walk on the beach before going to the Surf Club, and a pub type meal in cacophonous surroundings!
