Thursday 6th August
This morning left Karumba and head for Mount Surprise where we are currently camped. Last night we went to the Karumba point tavern and watched the Sunset. Caught up with Hannah (cook from Wondoola) her brother and fiance and had a champagne whilst the sun went down. By now you can work out who is in the photo. I cannot remember what caused the dot in front of Jenny. After leaving Karumba this morning we headed back into Normanton and had a walk around. The Burns Philp building and the Bank of New South Wales building are lovely building built in the early days of Normanton. Just for Neenie I took a photo of the Bank of New South Wales building. After leaving Normanton it was off to Croydon where we stopped for lunch. Very good little take away at the mobile garage. If passing I recomend this spot for a bite to eat. Then it was off to Georgetown for some more diesel and finally into Mt Surprise. Haven't yet seen much of Mt Surprise however we are off to the Undara Lava tubes tomorrow. The caravan park we are staying in is called the "Bedrock Village Caravan Park" plenty of room, with some of the best facilities we have seen to date. All of the advertising for the caravan park has pictures like in the Flintstone's, toilets are not male and female they are Fred and Wilma. More tomorrow.
