Sep 5, 2020 - Wildflowers of the desert - once every ten years!
We drove on to the iconic Noccundra Hotel for the night. There isn't anything here except a beautiful old sandstone pub dating back to 1880s near the Wilson River and a free camping site.

The caravan park is on the banks of the Warrego River. We travelled 258 Klms...Jump to full entry
