Day 27 – Winton

A cold morning turned into a very warm, sunny day.

We were up about 9 am and then off into town to see The Waltzing Matilda Centre. Apart from the historical stuff, which was certainly very interesting, Ann was particularly interested in some quilts that were on display. It was all very impressive and we had lunch there at the cafe – pie and cappuccino.

We then visited the fruit and veggie cool room and shop and on to the Spar supermarket for a few bits and pieces and made our way back to the van. Ann had a quiet rest while I explored the near by Diamantina Truck and Machinery Museum and took a few photos.

Later it was off to “Banjo’s Barn” at the caravan park for a roast dinner and tremendously funny dinner entertainment by bush poets Mel and Susie. It was a truly excellent night.
