Then we drove to Winton. We went to caravan park there it’s ok, but the pool is locked and it’s boiling here (30c). I miss Melbourne weather.
Mum took us to the musical fence, it was so fun. All we did is make noises AS LOUD AS WE COULD. Now I’m about to eat my dinner, Yum easy Mac
I’ve had an awesome day and tomorrow were going to see the dinosaur tracks, this town loves there dinosaur tracks  even there bins are big dinosaur feet.

We saw lots of stuff in Longreach which gave us a real outback experience! The stockmans hall of fame was really interesting which took you back in the days of old. The outback show would highly recomend it. 'Fantastic' the animals were so well trained. The Quantas Museum 747 tour was very interesting they even showed us where the black box is kept. Also I was told while up in the air they dumped ones and twos while flying, but that is not true when the plane is at the airport the honey truck comes to collect it.

Stockmans Hall of fame

Stockmans Hall of fame


Sunday: Today we packed the van up and headed to the stockmans hall of fame.
There was a man making whips, his name was Anthony, the whips where so cool, they were $150 each which is so cheap compared to the ones up stairs in the shop that were $600, mum and dad said we might be able to order one of the ones that Anthony made when we get home.
After that we went and saw a show that the stockman hall of fame put together. It was a man making his horses, dogs, bullocks and sheep do tricks. It was awesome.

first 3 days

sunny 25 °C

Thursday the 8th we packed our clothes and were ready to go by lunch time and drove 650 kilometres and camped in a resting place on the side of the road half way between Griffith and Cobar the temperature dropped to 0.7 degrees it was the coldest I’ve ever been when we woke up the canvas was frozen stiff we quickly packed up the trailer and headed off.
Friday the 9th was a full day off driving we got from Cobar to Blackall where we stayed in another free rest stop of to the side of town, driving that day all we saw was road kill and heaps of it every hundred metres there was another kangaroo splattered all over the bitumen and we started passing road trains that would push you to one side when you passed and the wall of wind was incredibly loud.
Saturday the 10th we woke up and quickly packed the trailer and drove to the blackall woolscour which is one of the only woolscours left that has an artesian bore as a water supply and is steam driven. It was closed down in 1978 and the locals of blackall have restored it back to its working state it is now open for tourists to take a tour through the scour our tour guide was called beaver and he used to work on the scour. We then drove to Longreach, set up at the caravan park and went to the Q.A.N.T.A.S founders museum and took a tour of a 747 we then went to a sheep shearing competition.

These are some photos of our tour of the Blackall Woolscour. well worth it. Beaver our guide was a pleasure to meet, but he would make a really good race caller he spoke really fast but told us some interesting facts.
