    We walked the 4k into Mitchell from the campsite and found the little town pretty much deserted. Well it is Sunday after all 😆. The atmosphere of the town is pretty much no atmosphere. 4 or 5 pubs were operating here once upon time. But only two are open now and they both have for sale signs on them. After a wander around the main st of town we had a beer at one of the pubs before walking back to camp. But after chatting to people near us we heard that the they send a shuttle bus out to this camp most days to take people into town so they can shop and enjoy the hot mineral spa that is located in the aquatic center. Its drawn from the artesian basin 1 kilometer below us.Read more

    We are in "Mitchell" Qld

    June 10, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    After leaving “Old Cork” we came through Longreach a few days ago, a lovely, lively, neat and clean town, very stockman, cowboy orientated. Then onto Charleville, which was a bigger but a much quieter and tired looking town than Longreach.
    We spent two days out on the Ward River, catching up on some washing and Dave tried his hand at fishing, but nothing jumped on his line.
    We got to try out the “Jackstrap”, a small winch for lifting the tyres when the tyre monitor started beeping, telling us we had a flat. It worked a treat and made the job much easier and safer.
    So here we are in “Mitchell” at the Neil Turner Weir, a free camp 4K out of town. Its a brilliant free camp, although we are amongst about 100 others also camping here, but it is a huge area, so we don’t feel overcrowded. We will head into town sometime today for a look at the town named in honour of Dave. 😜😹
