I take a few backroads avoiding the main highways and the traffic. Especially the big trucks. Ah the aptly named Black Stump Way.
Coolah is a small town a bit over half way on the trip and the hotel a good place for a night stopover.
The painted silos at Barabba are worth a stop on the Fossickers Way that leads up into Queensland.
The King and Queen Parrot giving me a welcome to Queensland.
Tambourine Mountain sits just west of the Gold Coast. Its a pleasant tourist destination and Queensland’s first National Park. Established in 1905.
A beautiful place to walk in some gondwana rain forest.
As well.as the parrots the kookaburras were a plenty.
And as the night fell the lights of the Gold Coast twinkled in the distance.
Definitely a very different place and seemingly a world away.
