21st May 2019–Stonehenge

Distance: 359km
Fuel: 23L

Another early morning, his time I went for a stroll into town to get milk and a few supplies before leisurely preparing to leave.

Am a bit fed up with visiting places I have been to before so today turned round and headed south to Longreach before turning off south west toward Stonehenge and Windorah.

Filled up with fuel in Longreach to ensure I had enough to get to Cunnamulla if there is no fuel available on the way (there is). The highway was single lane but in pretty good condition and I only met a few vehicles travelling the other way.

Arrived at Stonehenge early afternoon and decided to stay there for the night. The Barcoo Council has a caravan park which is only $16 a night.

Set myself up then wandered over to the community centre to pay, there the girl told me about an interesting tourist drive nearby called The John Egan Track. As I had most of the afternoon to kill I decided to go. It was rough! but very enjoyable, I lost the track a couple of times but found it again. There is even the 100 year old dog fence marking the southern boundary.

It took over half an hour to complete the 8km track. When I returned I went to the pub for a couple of beers before making myself an evening meal. It was lovely when the sun went down because the flies disappeared, I can’t remember the flies being so bad for many, many years.
