    Bottle Tree Ridge Lookout

    October 8 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    On the way back from Porcupine Gorge, we stopped for a walk up the ridge. There is good views over the surrounds. One cam walk along the Ridge to get other views of the area. On the end are the bottle trees. Today the local Happy Jack families flew in. Probably a hundred or so. They chattered merrily as they waited in the trees for the stragglers to catch up. Soon they all left.Read more

    Windmills and Dinosaurs

    October 8 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Hughenden is the town of windmills and dinosaurs. As part of the Australian dinosaur trail they are proud to tell everyone they too were home to the Muttaburrasaurus and quite a few others.

    Windmills were an essential pard of developing the outback. They reliably pumped water from hundreds of meters below the ground to water the growi g cattle and sheep industries. There are now very few operating windmills but some have been saved from the scrap heap and are on show.Read more

    February 4, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 31 °C

    Les grandes traversées désertiques commencent, on passe aux choses sérieuses, des paysages de plus en plats, des villages de plus en plus fantômes. Après notre 1ere nuit dans l'outback dans un camping glauquissime paumé au milieu de nul part où nous étions tout simplement seuls face au tavernier bourru, gérant de ces lieux...Read more

    Hughenden - fuel

    April 16, 2017 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 27 °C

    Hmmm...filled up with fuel and noticed a water leak under the van. Nothing strikes fear so much as having no water...

    Took a while but fixed the broken clamp and refilled the tanks. Made the decision to head for Townsville instead of The Lynd. 200 klms of dirt road today has been enough for the time being...juat couldn't face another 100 tomorrow.

    Day 30

    June 26, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Out of bed early this morning and said our goodbyes to Julia Creek, on the road east at 8:15 heading for Hughenden all bitumen pretty lumpy and bumpy in some sections but overall good, had a quick look at Richmond on the way through a nice spot to put on the list for another trip. Got into Hughenden setup and then headed down the street for lunch and look at the shops, had a pie from the bakery just average, went to the info centre and checked out the museum very interesting full of dinosaur history. Drove out to Mount Walker about 10 kms south of town, you can drive right to the top for 360 degree views as far as you can see, nice van park but just on overnight stop.Read more

    FJ Holden Cafe, Hughenden

    October 8 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    From the first moment you hear about the FJ Holden Cafe, you are curious. As you walk in the fist thing you see is a Golden Fleece petrol bowser, synonymous with the era of the great FJ. The next thing you notice is the front cut of an actual FJ. Then you notice all sorts of interesting items including quite a bit of Elvis memoebilia.

    The rear end of a monaro made into a lounge chair is quite unusual but in here would not raise a brow. Many models are safely displayed in cases and the walls are packed with info and curios. An old jukebox on display was imported from the USA. Even more curious is that it played 78rpm records.

    The Cafe is owned by the local people, the Holdens. FJ & JA Holden in fact. Francis and Jan have brought a wonderful and quirky idea to life.

    It doesn't end there though. This is a real cafe and the coffee and food is excellent. If we are ever in Hughenden, this is a must do stop.

    Overlander's Way

    July 5, 2011 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    Der sogenannte "Overlander's way" ist der Highway quer durch Queensland Outback bis zum Northern Territory. Ein öde Landschaft mit Überbleibseln aus der Goldrauschzeit Australiens und spektakulären Funden von Dinosaurierskeletten.
    An den Linksverkehr gewöhnt man sich auf den weiten Straßen sehr schnell.
    Unser erster Stopp ist die Stadt Hughenden im "Dinosaurier Land". Im Dinosaurier Museum ist ein Skelett ausgestellt, was ganz in der Nähe ausgegraben wurde.
    Kurze Mittagspause in Julia Creek. Mit 80 km/h über die Landstraße bleibt nicht viel Zeit für Rast, wenn man den nächsten Zeltplatz bei Tageslicht erreichen will. Autos begegnet man in dieser Weite nur sehr selten. Doch nicht so selten sind die Road Trains. 50 bis 53 Meter lang und mit 3 Anhänger ausgerüstet rasen sie quer durchs weite Land. Pünktlich zum Sonnenuntergang erreichen wir den Zeltplatz in Mt. Isa. In Tennant Creek, dem Ende von Overlander's way, treffen wir auf Oldtimer vergangener Zeit.
