Charleville to Blackall

 The Caravan Park was great at Charleville, it was on a working cattle station that has struggled through the drought , so they developed the caravan park to supplement the farms income
It was very cold, the car was thick with ice in the morning
         A visitor hopped around for a drink   
                                           The visitor got a little too friendly for my liking

            This is the "Black Stump" used for surveying purposes when Queensland was being mapped            

                                                      The Blackall Woolscour
The Woolscour operated from 1906 through until 1978. Woolscour means
woolwashing , it is the only steam driven wool scour left in Australia, classified by
the National Trust and is run by volunteers.
Quiet today, we were in a tour group of two and I think the volunteer would rather
have been anywhere else than there.

  2. What's it like sleeping, cooking, etc in the van. It looks like palace!
