Drillham to Mitchell (207km 2.30hr)
Sinking into the hot springs on a warm day seems slightly out of place, but the soothing water and massaging jets puts you in a great frame of mind. Mitchell turns out to be a surprising little town with streets lined with grand Bottletrees and decoratively mosaic footpaths and light posts. They even have unique Ned Kelly styled garbage bins
Mitchell to Charleville (181km 2hr)
Chunky icons of the past become present day entertainment, keeping their usefulness way past their use by dates as the kids explore all angles at the Graham Andrews Parklands. After wandering the walking tracks the mood is set as the sun sets over the lively pond, for the night’s star gazing.
The Cosmos Centre was an intense experience. The awe of the sky above overwhelms, as the walls and roof slid a way almost like a magic show. The knowledge that is passed is welcomed by all ages, and a fantastic introduction for the children to the outer world, as they explore the beauty in detail of the stars like never before. Definitely not to be missed. More Photography
