We went for a walk to the town centre and shops. Browsed the shops, bought some food supplies.

Came across the most incredible shop – Ace Drapers. I have never seen a place with so much stock, just all jammed in. I was drawn to it initially by the heaps of stock displayed outside on the footpath. So much material, wool, every imaginable sort of sewing supply. I bought some fabric for my embroidery – at a good price too.

The caravan park fills up by each evening, then empties out the next morning. Travellers are heading north, in a steady stream. A number of rigs have boats on the vehicle roof – suppose they are heading for Karumba or places on the coast like Cairns.
