Corrella Dam

From Longreach travelled to Winton, Kynuna (didn't even stop at the Blue Heeler pub for a drink), and drove on also passing Walkabout Creek Hotel at McKinlay (no one at pub and no one at Caravan Park!).  Free camped at Fullerton River North Rest Area approx 62kms SE Cloncurry.

Drove into Cloncurry where we met up with friends Jody & Michael and Chris & Mike and after grabbing a few supplies, continued onto Corella Dam (turn off at Clem Walton Park) .  Quite a few vans camped here - certainly a popular spot.  Found room for 3 vans and had a great couple of nights enjoying company of friends - even got the brazier out!  Not too successful with catching red claw though.

Great catch up with friends

Bonus - got the hairdresser into action!
Departed company with Jody, Michael, Chris and Mike as they travelled back to Cloncurry then north to Burke & Wills Road House.  We headed across the Barkly Highway to Camooweal where we stayed at the second billabong which was less populated than the first one.  Found a top spot where we could watch the abundance of birdlife including Wedge-tail eagles, brolgas, ducks, whistling kites, pelicans.   The day was quite warm (33 degrees) but luckily the night cooled considerably.
