Day 20 – Blackall to Longreach

We woke about 7.30 am. It was a beautiful morning at the free-camp and we enjoyed bacon and eggs, toast and brewed coffee for breakfast before we hit the road and headed north east.

We stopped for a coffee break south of Barcaldine and then drove on to Barcaldine for lunch. This is a very pretty RV friendly town. We bumped into Nola and Ike again. Walked around the town and had lunch at the very good Bakery and bought some fresh meat at the butcher.

Back on the highway and headed for Longreach. We passed through Infracombe where there was an interesting Machinery Museum. Must stop and check it out on the way back. The Caravan Park in Infracombe doesn’t look big enough for us though.

We drove on to Longreach and checked into our good drive through site at the Discovery Top Tourist Caravan Park. We were parked beside two very large 5th Wheelers which was a funny sight as we looked quite small in comparison! We went for a walk around the park – this is the largest caravan park we have seen.

Only had a light tea as we were both tired as although the weather was good today the road was not.
