I'm off tomorrow to adjudicate the Mackay Eisteddfod for two weeks.
I'm very excited because I haven't been to this part of Australia since I was a child. I hope I will get a chance to see a little of the gorgeous coastline on my one day off.
Mackay is about 970 kms north of Brisbane and is known as the Whitsunday region.
I expect it will be a little warmer than Mooloolaba, even though we are already having days of up to 26 degrees.
I've had a look over the program and it looks very exciting and certainly not too over programmed, something that comes with experience, this is Mackay's 64th eisteddfod!
I'll be keeping in touch on Facebook to let you know how I'm going.
