Nonda Camp BillabongOctober 6, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C
Another nice spot out of the blue! We had planned to stop at Julia Creek but since we had a very early start decided to head on a bit further.
This is a stock route watering point still in use to this day. Often there are huge mobs of cattle here for a night or two. The billabong is topped up by a flowing artesian bore. Water exits at about 45 degrees and flows into the BILLABONG where cools down ready for the cattle when needed.
Nearby was a thriving little township in days gone by. Mostly railway workers and their families. Now all the houses are gone leaving only the old school building that is privately owned
Someone has dropped 4 domestic ducks here. They are hanging around hoping for a handout. Probably they do better with other travellers than us.Read more
