Trip to the Outback

Turtles on the River Cruise.
The group of friends who travelled together on the tai, the Spirit of the Outback.
It is a very old train which reminds you of the Orient Express.
A Coolibah tree which is a sung in the song, Waltzing Matilda.
A wall mural in the town of Barcaldine a small town on the way to Longreach.
The Stockman's Hall of Fame which usually has a show with horses but was closed for renovations.
Starlight's Lookout. Legend says he stole 1000 cattle and took them
all the way to South Australia where he sold them. He was caught
but the judge let him go because he was so amazed at his feat.
Spectacular sunset. WE had to leave as it was in the bush with no street lights and we had a few near misses with kangaroos trying to cross the road. We stopped in the middle of the road and saw the night sky full of stars and saw Mars and Saturn quite clearly.
A flock of native brolgas.
The sunset again.
