I went through a lot of water and mud on the last leg of my journey back to work. Im glad I have a 4 wheel drive now instead of the Toyota Corolla. From the coast back to work was a 2 day trip and 17 hours driving.
I spent hours out on this road waiting for the moon to rise above a red sand dune and unfortunately the moving clouds covered the moon. I was lucky enough to have the company of a friend and a few drinks.Fortunately I captured two images in between the rolling clouds.
It was very dark by the time I headed home and having a night vision problem I took a wrong turn,I though mmmm this doesn’t look right, so eventually turned back and radioed up and asked for some assistance.It is a vast place with many roads in all direction. I eventually made it home.
My first day I left Noosa at about 7:30 am and arrived at Roma at about 4pm, Billy the dog was so well behaved I thought I must have the wrong dog with me. I pulled into a motel and asked did they have a room available? This is when I found out that the place is thriving and manic and No they had no accomadation they told me I wouldnt get any where to stay,so went to the tourist imformation centre and she rang around and I got the last room in the entire place and that was only because someone luckily cancelled. So for $120 a night in a cabin at a caravan park on the outskirts of town No A/C .
So if you are going in this direction be sure to book before hand.
The image I have here is taken the next day on the way to Charliville, searing heat, lots of road kill,(Kangaroos, Emus and Pigs) millions of crows, by the end of the trip I really got to appreciate the crows as they eat the road kill, so I could all ways tell there was something on the road to avoid,so I could slow down and not hurt my little car.
The roads were ok, miles of bitumen , not a sole to be seen for many, many miles.
On my second day I arrived in Quilpie.
