Where I stayed
Gundy Star Caravan park
Dubbo to Goondiwindi
Long drive today, left at 9.30am but did a little detour into Dubbo for a Gloria Jeans coffee. (Aaah that's better) so left at 10am really.
Picked up some cotton that was growing on the side of the road at Narrabri, kids thought it was funny that cotton balls grew on plants.
Side of the road in a truck stop for lunch, interesting experience with a potty loo, with no lock (bit scared a truckie would walk in) and no toilet paper.
Today began our first of many games of 'Car Cricket’ (of which I (Kylie) will continually call points instead of runs). This game works wonders on long car trips, even better when the cars are few and far between. Thanks to Auntie Loz who told us about this game the day before we left.
Finally passed the Queensland border at about 5.30pm into Goondiwindi. Stayed at ‘Gundy Star’ caravan park, great little stop over place, place to sleep, not to stay (but very friendly staff).

Goondiwindi to Rockhampton
Planned to stay at Banana or Theodore but no caravan parks so we had to keep driving until we got Rockhampton.
We stopped at Miles for a picnic lunch little park – saw a rooster running around the park (interesting sight).
Rockhampton was really busy and we couldn’t get into the first caravan park we stopped at, and so drove onto to North Rockhampton (over the river). It was 7pm when we finally pulled into our site, we were all exhausted and thought best no cooked and all opted for pizza.
