    Colins Cattlefarm

    I had my own little house, were I was searching for a bathroom first.. Couldn't find one.. After asking Colin.. It wasn't that difficult to find it. It was just behind the house.

    Colin has got 6000 cattles, 100 horses, 12 dogs & three puppies & a few birds.
    The farm is giant !!! You can have a ride in the car for (I think) nearly 3 or 4 ours !!! Only on the property !!!
    The view is amazing ! There are the 'Black down Tablelands' & only a blue sky !
    Don't ask me for the degrees ! It was toooooo hot !!

    June 22, 2017 in Australia

    Up early this morning to pack up, said our goodbyes to Peter and Lyn and hit the road, goodbye to lake Maraboon we had a fantastic time for the week. Heading south down to Springsure, Rolleston and Injune for lunch and then Roma and our stop for the night is the fishermans free camp on the Balone river at Surat as per usual lots of vans. Nice setting bit close to the road but ok for an overnight stop, just kicken back having a drink and enjoying the sunshine.Read more

    The Big Nut & Bolt - Roma

    July 5, 1991 in Australia

    Following Landsborouh highway then at Moven it turns into Warrego highway, from there another 2 hours and plenty of roadworks to Roma, the main town in the Western Downs region.

    The "Big Bolt & Nut" are not easy to spot, I knew roughly where they were using the address in Wikipedia and driving at 40kph. The big thing is located outside Banks bolt & fasteners, just inside their fence.

    The Big Rig - Roma

    July 6, 1991 in Australia

    This is one of the most popular "Big Thing" and it is being looked after. It is an icon in Roma and is part of a Night Show where Oil & Gas exploration in the area from the early beginnings is explained. Unfortunately I was too tired after driving 7 hours from Barcaldine that I missed the show.

    The Big Rig is located adjacent the information centre close to the Eastern end of town, hard to be missed.Read more
