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.

Murgon 8 August 2013

Had a look around Gayndah in the morning. This is predominately an agricultural town, growing oranges, mandarins and avocadoes with water from the Burnet River. It is a lively town, with a lot of money flowing back into the town from the fruit pickers. A lot of back packers work here which gives a boost to the town's economy. Drove through the countryside on a hilly back road past bubbling streams, green pastures and full dams – makes a change from further west. Murgon was dairy country but today is predominately grapes and other crops. There is a large Aboriginal population which also contributes to the economy of the town. Stopped near the showground for a peaceful night.
