West side of the Tamar.

Packed the Thermos and picnic bag and headed up to the very top of the Tamar, calling into all the little bays along the way, just beautiful. Its been awhile since we’ve been out since our start of the house sit as I came down with a virus so sat that out. Love walking the dogs and checking where everything is in our area, feeling like the local, love it.

Day 30

Monday 13th June,  Terry Smiths Lookout.

Heading to Terry Smiths Lookout for the night, its 80 km north of Cloncurry on the Burke and Wills development road. Stopped for lunch at the Burke&Wills Roadhouse,  big place, must of been 20 vans of sorts parked in there. We got fuel @ 1.49 a litre. Got to the Lookout and there’s heaps of vans but within the two hours the place has filled up to 19 vans. Several have a drive in and drive off. There are toilets and dump point but not always water in the tank. Light tea with a early start tomorrow. Bed and it’s only 8 pm. Few photos of the day.
