At the Museum

Artesian spa pools

Our last day in Quilpie was a lazy day. We had lunch at Heinemanns Cafe where we again chatted to the young woman who is the owner of the cafe. Her great grandfather was a bullock team driver in the Quilpie area, as was her grandfather. It was interesting to hear of the history of the town and its surrounding area.

We visited the Museum where the history of Quilpie is displayed in photos and documents. The area has seen many times of floods, droughts and bush fires.

The gallery next door to the Museum had an extensive display of Quilting on show.

We returned to the caravan park and ventured into the Artesian Spar pools. Very relaxing.

We finished the day by again enjoying the meal around the campfire, this time corned beef & veges..
