Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Rankins Springs 12 October 2009

Spent the morning in Hay and then set off east. The landscape remained the same, with endless plains, wheat-fields and occasional rice-fields. Past Goolgowi, (a half-horse town) the countryside became hilly and by the time we reached Rankin Springs (a one-horse town) there were trees and green grass! These little towns are dying and have the skeletal remains of neglected shops! One very intriguing deserted café from the past, The Bluebird Café, had lovely colonial architecture and a charming little bluebird motif above the door. In peeling faded paint it boasted hamburgers and Chicko Rolls! Stayed in the truck stop near the pub and heard only one or two trucks -very quiet.
