Left Burleigh Heads after needing to have mixer tap in shower fixed and travelled through Canungra, Beaudesert, Boonah, Aratula and onto Warrick where we stayed at Rose City Caravan Park. Small park but OK for a night although in the morning had a massive job trying to clean bird poo off the cruiser!! Continued to Inglewood, Goondiwindi then onto Nindigully Pub where we stayed the night. Decided to have a meal at the Pub but bit disappointed as selection was minimal and cost was high - perhaps that explained why we were one of only 3 couples dining when 30 odd vans stayed the night!

Departed next day to St George then onto Bollon where we stayed at a free camp by Wallam Creek, with a walking track into town. Was a lovely camp spot -very popular and also provided a beautiful sunset.
|The Bollon overnight camp is next to the cemetary and this night provided a great sunset.|

|This sunset was exceptional, so nice to be back on the road.|
Drove along Balonne Highway to Cunnamulla where we called into the Information Centre and were warmly greeted and given lots of information about the area. On our journey towards Eulo, we encountered heaps of Emus and the countryside was quite green in patches due to recent rains. Camped at 5 mile Waterhole approx 10km SW Eulo on the Paroo River - great spot and even better we had it to ourselves!!
|Camped at 5 mile Waterhole just out from Eulo - living life outdoors again ;)|
|Hels trying to show how good the arm is now by measuring the road width - lucky outback Qld roads are only one lane!!|
|Yowah Artesian Bore, sunk in1911 to a depth of 1468 ft (447m)|
|Artesian Baths at Caravan Park - had to give them a shot, note no roof so you can have a million star bath!|

|One of Colin's sample stones - Yowah Nut opal|
|The tour provided scones and coffee - great that Helen does not like scones and I had to have her share!|
