WEDNESDAY 16 MARCH   LONGREACH TO WINTON   180kms

Refuelled on the way out of Longreach in the morning. $1.09cpl

It was a very hot day, but a much shorter day of driving, thankfully. John actually agreed with me that to push on to Cloncurry today would make for a horrible day. Plus, he wanted to visit the opal shop!

There was cloud build up. It looked very much like there would be rain, but we only had a few drops. We really didn’t want to be driving in the heavy downpours that can happen in these parts at this time of year.

Refuelled in Winton – $1.15cpl.

Went into the Matilda Country Caravan Park. $18 after Top Tourist discount.

Walked to the town centre and to the opal shop at the far end. Had a long talk with the owner – about developments in the area since we were last here. Left some Pungalina brochures with him and also agreed to take some of his brochures up to Adels for display there.
