30 Oct Country Queensland
Hi Everyone, I’m now in St George and have covered 580kms.
Today is a rest day, where I recover before hitting the road tomorrow for Cunnamulla, a 3 day ride. It’s been a great adventure so far, seeing some great parts of Queensland. This area is in the middle of a grain harvest, which is the first they’ve been able to harvest in six years given the drought conditions. The towns I pass through are looking like they have seen better days, so no doubt a successful harvest is a welcome event. I’ve passed huge mounds of grain at the Talwood collection centre heading, I assume, to a weetbix box near you. The scale of the wheat growing is mind blowing (miles of yellow fields), with road trains hauling grain up and down the highway all day.
Looking forward to the next leg of this adventure as I head due west.
