Sunday 5th June
Got away from Terry Smiths Lookout by 8.25 am. Great spot to stay, nice and quiet as well. Had a good drive through to Burke and Wills roadhouse. Had morning tea, fueled up all set for Lawn Hill. A wedgie was across the road but to far. On our next leg we encountered so many things, Bustards, Emu’s, Brolgas, Sea Eagle, and a Wedge tail Eagle landed on a carcass in front of us and we all but hit it, I didn’t even get a shot away as I was so flabbergasted thinking we were going to hit it. There were all sorts of birds at the rest stop as well. We arrived at Gregory River just after lunch, once all set up had a bite to eat down the river, just a beautiful spot, with amazing bird life. Jack and Alice are on the lower side down by the river, we chose to stay up the top in shade. Here for two nights, will be staying here again on our return from Lawn Hill.
Had Lunch here. lovely spot, the people are new owners and they are so helpful, very friendly.
BBQ area down the end at the Burke & Wills.
As we drive off there’s cattle on the road, they have the right of way. We are following that sign.
Speaks for its self.
The Termite mounds are getting bigger around this area.
Road narrows. Glad it hasn’t rained for awhile, very muggy side of the roads when its been wet.
Off the tar seal for now.
Leichhardt River, so nice to see water in some of the creeks and rivers.
Interesting watching how the foliage changes from time to time.
Dry river bed.
The cattle never even moved, they are use to the traffic.
Savannah way next time.
We are staying at the National Park.
This is our morning tea spot. Gregory River. Clean and fast flowing.
View towards the bridge, we come over this then turn down to here. Lots of room.
View from our kitchen. In the shade all day, weather was very hot.
Afternoon tea spot, lots of Kites and other little birds.
Brolga’s on side of road.
Kite at the river.
They have a nest in the large tree just above us.
