IMG_0464.jpegWell done Brenda and Alan. Eromanga it is, home to Cooper the Titanosaur, Australias largest.

The new Natural History Museum is well worth visiting as part of the QLD dinosaur circuit including Hughenden, Richmond, Winton, Mt Isa for the Riversleigh story, Boulia, Lark Quarry dinosaur stampede and of course Cooper here.

Above is the Knotasaurus at Eromanga!


Where to next friends.

 A couple of pics of a good campsite after a very wet spell, there is usually just a small flow in the river.

Hello all, been a while since I visited, for some reason I stopped getting emails, but today this one popped up, so will take a guess at Corella Dam in North Queensland

Not Qld. The hill on the right is a very recognizable feature when the water level is low as is usual.

Not Vic , somewhere between the two. Think water and cotton.

Is nobody else playing now. This site is a free camp in NSW with a 21 day limit. It is about 20 Km from the nearest town. You could say there is a connection to the Philippine's.

Close but no cigar, it is on the Manila river . This reserve is about 40 Km northward from Manila.

Strange I thought this site would be well known amongst the free camping grey nomads. Roughly 40 acres of grounds mown by a small herd of cattle on the banks of the Manilla river.

The site in question is Glen Riddle reserve south east of Barraba on the northern arm of Split Rock dam.

Over to anybody who wishes to post a photo.

We went to see this water tank on a day drive whilst staying in a cabin in South Grafton.

Hi there, Just thought I'd let you know this is the water tank at Lawrence, NSW. As I said earlier we were staying in South Grafton and we did a day trip to Lawrence and McLean. We drove up one side of the river to Lawrence, had a look around, then crossed the river on the ferry and continued to McLean. There's a really good lookout at McLean where you can see to the ocean, also the park with the Scottish totem poles, then we drove back via the other side of the river, popping into a couple small towns on the way back. Nice area. Someone else can put up a photo if they so desire. Cheers for now.

Where are these well-curated vehicles?

Your thinking, Gaylehere, is spot on. It is indeed the Historic Village Herberton, in the Atherton Tablelands of Queensland. The Historic Village is a magnificent collection of ... almost everything, beautifully curated and displayed on a huge site adjacent to the Wild River.
www.historicvillageherberton.com.au/

Over to you Gayle.

DSCN0108.JPGThanks.  It's been 5 years since we were up that way.  We were here in June last year.  So where would you find this silo art?
