Monday 30th Fullerton Rest Area.
Early start this morning. J&A went on in to Winton to do a few things and we met up with them when we did the toilet dump and fueled up. Heading to Cloncurry, stopping for morning tea at a wonderful spot where there were some jump ups. Then carried onto the Blue Heeler Pub, had a bit to eat, lots of history in the place. On the road after lunch we saw Crocodile Dundee Pub, not the same looking as the movie. Fueled up as it was cheap. 1.15 liter. Lovely country side, flat as, dry as, so sad. We checked out the Combo waterhole, gee it was hot walking to the water hole, but interesting story as to the Chinese building the stone pathway. Saw lots of gibber stone. The road goes on forever. We are camped at Fullerton River rest area. Really nice stop over and stayed one night only. Did some milky way shooting.
Early morning at Winton at the Long Water Hole, packing up and heading for Cloncurry with a stop over night somewhere like Fullerton River Rest Area, but I saw no river. 🙂
Some very long Road Trains, if they have only 3 dogs they didnt seem so big after seeing many with 4 dogs.
The road goes on forever. Jump-ups in the distance.
A jump up.
A road train with 4 dogs.
Windmill not doing much good.
Many of these rest area’s every where we have traveled, so good, with toilets and shade for eating.
Very flat land and horizon, makes you feel quiet small, in the realm of things.
Heading into Combo Water Hole, that’s Jack & Alice up ahead, its so dusty we’er stay well behind. Got the air-con on its very hot outside.
Map to show where we are and where we’ve come from today.
Walking to the Combo Water Hole.
These are the stone walkways that the Chinese built and there’s water! There are many of these we crossed.
Under the shade of a Coolibah tree.
More water. Its dirty looking but was still inviting, but to muddy to take a dip, dammmmm.
Lots of interesting thing here to read.
Heading out from the combo water hole, we have been so lucky to see so much greenery as it was very wet only two weeks prior to this trip.
Lunch is coming up.
Had a bit to eat, very interesting place. One can camp here if they want, there is a caravan park out back.
Well this is a pub with lots of history.
If you saw the Movie you’ll recognize this.
I’m very fascinated with Termite mounds. These are small ones.
Milky way at our rest stop. Fullerton River Rest area.
