Day 58 - 9th June

Avon Downs Campsite to Prarie

Distance Travelled - 838.2 km

Saw another sunrise today. It is a scary thought to think that I have probably seen more sunrises in the last 8 weeks than in the last 8 years. Whilst it was not spectacular it was still nice to watch. Packed and left before 8 am and headed towards the Qld border.

Drove to Mt Isa and looked through a few shops, went to the bank and the Info Centre before heading off again. Most of the drive was through cattle grazing country, not particularly exciting but pleasant enough to watch as I drove past. Not much else really to look at.

Got to Prarie (about 40 km past Hughenden) about 7 pm and called in at the pub for tea. No menu, but was offered curried sausages with rice and beans - a nice enough tea for my birthday. Ate tea, spent some time on the phone to various people and then wrote my blog and got ready for bed feeling rather weary. Tomorrow I will head into Townsville and meet Aunty Jan and Uncle John either tomorrow or Thursday and will make decisions about which direction to go then.

                      Queensland Border Sign (not as nice as the one going from S.A. into N.T.)

                                                    Apparently Qld cattle have attitude!

                         Cloud shot driving between towns, something to relieve the boredom.
