Jul 24, 2017 - Julia Creek - Time to Turn North

On the road again which I might add was not the best very rough and the road is starting to have more Skippy's - very dry country out here. Pull into Richmond Lake for a look around - this town has done heaps in presenting a nice and tidy place and the lake is great. About 20 kms from Julia Creek we needed to pull over to check any damage in the caravan as the road is so bad here and at one stage we are sure we were airborne. Well all is OK it seems the inside of our caravans travel better in the rough. After visiting the Information...

Jun 18, 2016 - DAY 62

Day 62 Into Mt, Isa had a drive around and found out that most shops were closed as it was their show day. At the information center there was a sign saying Don’t take a laxative and a sleeping pill at the same time before going to bed. Into Cloncurry went through John Flynn Place this was very interesting , this is where the Flying Doctors started and the second was in Port Headland

RUSSANDY 2016

May 1, 2016 - Richmond to Julia Creek

I got up early and took Chilli and Ruby for a walk up to Lake Fred Tritton where they were able to have a bit of a run. We then drove around to the other side of the dam where they were putting on breakfast, had breakfast and watched everyone try to hit a golf ball into a target in the middle of the lake for prize of $10,000. No–one won the money! Went back to camp to pack up, then hit the road for Julia Creek. Temperature hit 37°C on the drive! Pulled into the Julia creek RV free camp just after lunch. This has to be the best organised...

Aug 30, 2008 - Resting in Julia Creek

We had a fantastic time camping on the Gregory River. We asked the station manager of the Riversleigh station if it was ok to camp on his property. With the Go ahead we found this fantastic place. We stayed for two great nights. With no one around we had the whole river to ourselves. We checked out the Lorne National Park but did not think that much of it. After seeing Kakadu we would have to be blown away to say its anything to compare. The road into the Park was very rough on the car. You will notice in the pics one driving light and the...

J.C.'S BIG ADVENTURE

Jun 2, 2005 - Julia Creek (12/05/05 - 15/05/05)

An outback town in the middle of outback Queensland. And looking around, yuo really know it. A friend wanted to come here to watch some sort of Rodeo event but it actually consisted of Stockmen chasing cows around a series of gates in a dust bowl arena. I was a little bemused. What I did see a lot of were said Stockmen (Cowboys) dressed identically in bright blue wrangler jeans, checked plaid shirts, big old hats and spurs. Yes, spurs. Even the ones who weren't riding. Even some of their kids were dressed in this manner. Scared? Damn right...
