It’s spring so what better way to start our journey than the Toowoomba Spring Festival. Day one is a short day so we can get close to the festival for an early start (combatting parking a large caravan during a busy festival)

The noise of the road is muffled as we make our way down to right beside the river, a large area great for exploring and we have officially joined the rock-stacking traveller’s guild
