    We are not stopping for long at most places as they are very small and nowhere to camp. We have reached Moura which is a coal mining town and saw this beautifully painted water tower ! You need to enlarge them to see the Galah clearly. It was difficult to photograph.Read more

    No hoax!

    We had started calling it the Great Crested Hoax!!
    Friends had seen the Great Crested Grebe at Theresa Creek Dam! So we walked for miles around the dam for 3 days, only to see it in the late afternoon of our last day just down from where we were camping!!
    Our patience had been rewarded!

    Very pretty! Although it does look a bit like the Lochness Monster in the last photo.

    Safe travels Lal and Geoff. Looks like there has been some rain up there.

    This area is not in drought although it’s very dry and dusty, it’s just how their winters are!! They have more monsoonal weather so plenty of torrential rain in summer which fills up dams and reservoirs! We are heading into the drought further south!

    A great place stay. Nadine is a great cook so we had the Sunday roast beef and the following night curry!
    I saw a Pale headed parrot which has a red rump!
    They have 3 dams and a bore so are drought proof.
    Here are some photos from our time there.

    Elim Beach.

    This place is north of Cook Town. A bush camp by the sea. Run by aboriginal people.
    Idyllic with white sands, palm trees and ferns.
    The tide goes out a very long way! Luckily, because it is very shallow, the crocodiles are 3 Ks away and are not a problem!!Read more

    3 km is still too close for my liking! Munch, munch!!!
