    We decided to stay in the little town of McKinlay on our way to Mt Isa. McKinlay’s only claim to fame is that it is the site of the pub used in the Crocodile Dundee movie. The pub also serves as the towns only caravan park.
    What a brilliant night we had! We were entertained by a group of musicians who happened to be performing at the pub for just one night. A few of the tourists passing through the little town also did impromptu performances. We had a lot of laughs, did a lot of dancing and had one or two drinks until midnight. It was a memorable night.🍺🍸🍷🎸Read more

    Day 27

    June 23 in Australia

    Time to move again today a bit further east, 140kms to Julia Creek good road a little bit lumpy and bumpy got into town at 10:30 just winging it at the caravan park as you have to book, no probs got a good spot with a concrete pad staying 3 days here. Great place the van park is super clean and the whole town is very well presented, wandered down the street all the shops you need picked up a couple of souvenirs at the newsagent. Another cracker of a day 27 degrees with a slight breeze, probs the most flies we have encountered for the trip so far but not as bad as home on a hot day.Read more

    Day 3 here at Julia Creek, great spot to rest and chill out, walked down to the Main Street on the morning and had a look in the shops, found some nice timber products but just a bit too big for us to bring home, Teresa picked up a couple of cookbooks from the newsagents in stead. Spent the day doing a few jobs on the van and car, back down the street in the car to pick up beer the super important job as Iron Jack beer is hard to get up here in the far north got the last slab 😁👍 school holidays have started and the park is full again tonight, happy hour time now 🍻 cheers !Read more
