Charleville – Nindigully – approx 433km Stoked up the fire this morning and first light here is a lot earlier than it was in Birdsville as well as much warmer overnight temperatures – was 6.7° this morning at 7am as opposed to -1° at Birdsville in the morning.

Well, this iconic hotel deserves it’s own post.  I was so looking forward to coming here and I was not disappointed.  This whole area was so much fun.  Not just the hotel, but the camping grounds were great and we did a day trip up to Cooktown and Archer’s Point (more on that in the next post).
