Sep 29, 2015 - at Carnarvon

TUESDAY 29th Sept John and Bronwyn did the 14km guided tour to Art Gallery and all sights from there back starting at 8:00am. Off early at 8:45 to Amphitheatre and Moss Garden. Significant changes since our last visit 20 years ago when we came here after Steve and Kylie's wedding in St George. The path has been rerouted away from the creek so that instead of working our way up the creek using both sides with 9 crossings to the Amphitheatre there are now only 3. It takes a little of the charm away from the original walk but I'm sure it's a...

Sep 28, 2015 - at Carnarvon Gorge

MONDAY. 28th Sept Day one of our 2 day stay in Carnarvon had a slow start as we didn't get off to start our walk until after the morning cuppa. Mind you we were only planning on doing the short walks outside the gorge today. So we packed lunch and some morning tea and headed off. Mickey Creek Gorge was first and that was a nice surprise. As we got close to the end (which we didn't make) the gorge became very narrow and beautifully cool. To get to the end we would have had to wade through water which didn't seem worth it so we passed it up...

Sep 27, 2015 - Carnarvon Gorge Nat Pk

SUNDAY 27th Sept We left Nevill Hewitt Weir about 9:30 and drove the couple of blocks that represent Baralaba to ascertain there was no where open for fuel (let alone anything else). On to Banana, still nothing open so continue west to Moura for morning tea and find nothing open there either. So we head further west until we get to Rolleston, our turning point to head south. On the way we share the road with a mob of gaunt drought stricken cattle which are grazing the "long paddock" to try to obtain some feed. So sad to see. Finally in...

Sep 21, 2015 - Day 86 / Injune

We are staring to make bigger steps toward home now. Today was 313kms to Injune, backtracking, the way we came up, over the Dawson Hwy through Springsure and Rollestone and then onto new ground on the Carnarvon Hwy to Injune. On this stretch, not far from the Carnarvon Gorge turn off, while I was driving, I had an altercation with a kangaroo! The dry grass at the side of the road was about 3 foot high and right to the side of the tar and without any warning the kangaroo suddenly hit the front RHS of the car. I didn't even see it until it...
