Top o’ the Morning #3

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #18

It’s not an Australian bush camping trip unless you’re woken at sunrise by the raucous “laughter” of the kookaburra. The largest of the kingfishers, kookaburras call out every morning to re-establish their territory. Usually one bird starts before the rest of the family group joins in, reminding nearby groups of their presence.

Top o’ the Morning #2

At the start of the day, the rising sun casts a golden glow over the bush.

It’s breakfast time, but the kangaroos stop grazing for a while to watch us watching them.

Out at Gubberamunda State Forest where the grass trees grow, the morning sun struggles to shine in an overcast sky. It’s cool now, but once the clouds burn off the temperature quickly rises.

Over the Top

After recent rain in the Cunnamulla area the Warrego River was full.

Just outside town the muddy water flowed freely over the top of the weir before heading downstream towards New South Wales.

A single pelican cruised along on top of the water, riding the rapids in search of lunch.

Top Rated

According to the tourist brochures, Deb’s Cafe is the best in Bollon. It’s also the only cafe in Bollon.

The cafe’s top rating is no surprise. You can get a tip top tasty lunch and your live bait for fishing, both at the same time!

From Top to Bottom

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #13

This old cottage in Mitchell is in need of a “Grand Designs” makeover from top to bottom, inside and out. Someone’s made a start by replacing the old stumps with termite proof steel posts, but there’s a long way to go.

A Top Drop, But Not Today

Western Queensland Road Trip Square Tops Challenge #12

The signs at the turn off to the Nindigully Pub weren’t encouraging.

But Mr ET wasn’t going to be put off that easily. We continued down the track to the pub, which has been sitting on the banks of the Moonee River since 1864. There was no one about – only nine people live in the town of Nindigully.

It was looking more positive up on the veranda…

but even though the sign said “Happy Hour” there was no beer.

The pub was closed!

We’re definitely going back to Nindigully once the travel bans are lifted.
