Citrus farm shop, Gayndah

Saw carved 'farmer' statue, Yarraman

22/6/2016 Wednesday

We were woken this morning to the traffic noises, roosters crowing, but loudest of all, were the cockatoos. They must have had a good meeting, where they all wanted to talk at once. The sunrise was as pretty as last nights sunset.

We drove back into Gayndah to have a look around, but at 9am, there were very few shops open. We followed the sign to 'bullock team' but couldn't find it, so decided we'd buy some oranges and mandarins at the farm shop opposite where we stayed the night, and move on.

There was very little traffic on the road, and we stopped at Goomeri to buy a treat for morning tea, but the bakery/cafe had closed, so we did without morning tea and continued on to Yarraman where we stopped for lunch.

The countryside changed from lush, green pastures, to dry, brown land. It was interesting to see this, but we think it must be where the rain fell and where it missed out. Once we got closer to Kilcoy, it was lush and green again.

We decided we'd continue on home, as we have a lot to do in a couple of days before we move to Albany Creek and 'teenage sit' for 2 weeks for Sandie and Steve. I'm looking forward to having the boys to ourselves - expect some challenges like cooking for 5 instead of 2, washing for 5 instead of 2 - but how hard can it be. Things will just take longer to do.

And don't forget - State of Origin tonight! Queenslander!!

We arrived home at 4pm after an easy drive today, although we were held up at 3 lots of roadworks - more in one day than the rest of the holiday combined.

Half of the unpacking is done, a couple of loads of washing done - now time to relax.

It's been a great holiday, part shared with friends - thank you - and part on our own. Cobbold Gorge was the hi-light and we would recommend it to all who have the ability to visit.
