Day 24 – Longreach

Yet another lovely sunny day here – around 27 degrees with a clear blue sky. Ann did some washing and we had a slow morning enjoying the warm sunshine.

We drove into town but most places were closed so we went for a walk in the botanical gardens near the Stockman’s Hall of Fame. There are some lovely stone buildings and fences, a well maintained garden and some beautiful poems carved in stone as well as some statues celebrating the women of the west.

Then it was back to the caravan park to discover that the camp had been invaded by around 100 school kids on an excursion of some sort. Fortunately they were on the other side of the park so we settled down with some ice creams and to read in the shade.

School kids jammed in like sardines

A noisy family in Jayco Flamingo stayed next to us for the night – just as well it was only 1 night. We had a delicious roast dinner under the stars while they were at the camp kitchen.

It was a balmy night and warm enough to leave the hatch over our bed open all night so we could sleep under the stars.
