Day 66

Thursday 16th

Slept real well, was pretty chilly last night and still is this morning, I know it’s not going to last. We filled up with fuel in Tambo, love to give a wee bit back to the towns that allow freedom camping, we do respect it. Got to Augethella and had a bite to eat at the cafe in pub. Huge wide streets. Looked around town, some lovely paintings of art on the shops.The drive to Charllieville is beautiful, purple and yellow flowers growing wild along the side of road in places. We have booked into a Bush Camp on private property 2 km east of town.

Day 65

Wednesday 15th

Had breakfast by the fire this morning a real cold snap, there is snow somewhere down south can feel it. All packed up, dropped into see Fran, caretaker of Lara and Don gave her the bird collection he did while we stayed there, he photographed 26 different types of birds in the 5 days we were there, they have compiled a book for visitors. Stocked up with some food items at Blackall and went to info centre to look around, then headed off to Tambo to Scrubby Bend. Nice place to stay, no road noise and its the tidiest wee town.
