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.

Black Bull Siding 16 August 2015

Still travelling west - this is pretty flat, arid country, but there is enough variety in the countryside to make it interesting.
Pulled into Croydon for lunch, which is an old gold mining town that was once one of the largest towns in Queensland. Because of the wealth from the mines, many fine public buildings were built and have now been preserved and are open to the public to look at. It was a bit like walking around an old western movie set as none of the old buildings have been demolished and we enjoyed our visit.
We stopped at a small rail siding for the night that once supplied water to the steam engines heading up to Normanton. The track is only used for the Gulflander now, which only comes through once a week, so we knew we would have a peaceful night.
