It was an interesting drive from Thargomindah to Cunnamulla and we stopped about halfway at Eulo for a look around at the opal shop. We all bought some rocks of some sort and continued on our way to Warrego Riverside Tourist Park where we luckily jagged a powered site for 2 nights without a booking. The caravan park is very well cared for and the hosts couldn’t have been more inviting. They even lent the kids a yabby pot along with some advice on how and where to set the pot. The sites were very nice.
The communal fire is available for happy hour and if you want to use it for cooking you are welcome to light it up anytime. There is even a ready pile of gidgee roots to get the fire burning. We took the simple option of starting the fire early and put a camp oven stew on.
The kids put the yabby pot in along the river and tried to resist the temptation of pulling it up every 15 mins to see if they’d caught something. It is a beautiful spot.
The next morning we went into town to have a look around and stopped by the visitor centre where we got to go through The Artesian Time Tunnel. We also managed a picture of the Cunnamulla Fella (& the Cunnamulla Kid).
While driving around town we came across this.
Back at camp that afternoon the kids finally caught a couple of decent size yabbies. As there were only 2 we donated them to the lady next door who had caught a couple herself and was deciding whether to use them as bait to catch some fish or cook up a meal.
Unfortunately shortly after this photo Liam learned the hard way why you need to get a good grip in the right spot on the yabbys back. Ouch!
