Here we are at Cunnamulla.

We were headed to Cobar, when we got there the park was full. Filled up with fuel and decided to head for the Kidman Camp at Bourke, where we stayed for 3 nights. This was our third time in the park

Whilst picking out a spot it started to rain and continued for the next 14 hours. The paddle steamer was not operating because there was to much water in the river.

We went out for tea for my birthday, expecting to have Chinese, but a busload of tourists also came and had arranged for normal tea being the menu for the night.

Left for Cunnamulla and nearly had a passenger.

We also stopped at the Barringun Roadhouse for morning tea. They had at least 43 mm of rain in the last 48 hours so a reasonable amount of of water in the front of the building,

In Cunnamulla we visited the weir where a water supply has come from since 1991 for surrounding landowners. Also used for recreational fishing. Notice the chair on the right hand side

The Cunnamulla Fella is a tribute to the hard work of the youth of the area, 15 or 16 years old and working daylight hours seven days a week

The railway station was at the end of the line that came from Charleville but originated from Brisbane in 1898. Built in the 1930’s it replaced another destroyed by fire. It closed in 1994,

Not a silo being painted but a water tower.
