TUESDAY 23 SEPTEMBER ADELS GROVE TO CLONCURRY 435kms
I was quite sad to be leaving here after so many months. It was such a beautiful place. But, given the staffing situation, it was – from our viewpoint – a good time to go. I suspected we would be back.
Took the usual route via Gregory Downs and Burke and Wills Roadhouse. Reached Cloncurry after a long, hot and dusty drive.
Went back into the Gilbert Park Caravan Park – $17.10 a night, after discount.
We unhitched Truck and went to the supermarket for some food supplies. It felt really alien to be in such a place again, and was quite hard to adjust to. Such choice!
Refuelled Truck – 89cpl. That was a big difference – back under the dollar.
The other aspect that was really noticeable to us was the general background noise of the town – vehicle traffic, train noise, and just having people around, in general.
