Paroo River – B, W, F, D. 1.5km out of Eulo. Next to the Paroo river, close to road,. Camping on both sides of river, tracks that followed along the river had pull offs for camping. Lots of long grass along the river, clearer areas closer to the road. Not the best camping area but a pleasant spot with lots of birds. Rating – 2
Last night we stopped at Cooyar at Swinging Bridge. Flipping the trailer up for a quick over night worked well. We were on the road by 7.45, heavy dew last night so the canvas was packed up wet, all nice and dry in the trailer though.
We had lunch at St George near the River. The temporary dirt level bank that was erected to save the town in this years flood was still in place.
Today was a big travel day, over 700kms. There was more road kill than we have ever seen. It’s not surprising with the amount of wildlife out here. Mostly unfenced so cattle can just roam all over the road. Heaps of kangaroos, one stopped in the middle of the road just looking at us. Goats, emus and plenty of Lizards sunning themselves on the road. We might slow down to avoid them but I doubt the 53m road trains do.
This is the furthest west in QLD we have been so far.
