Winton

Another long and to be honest pretty boring drive today up the endless A2 with not much of interest apart from abundant road kill and even more abundant wedge tail eagles feeding off the road kill. We arrive in Winton in the late afternoon and for the third time camped behind the pub/hotel in a pretty scruffy carpark. Our general mood was not helped by a cloudy day with passing storms. Along the side of the carpark was Arno's Wall. There is always some pretty whacky stuff in Australia and Arno's wall was part of the boundary wall of the pub with everything set in it such as oven doors, scrap motorbikes, wire wheels, you name it and it was in there somewhere. We don't always get these things and gave up over thinking it years ago.

The next morning, refreshed and determined to understand Winton we set out on the 50km tourist drive known as the River Gums Drive. We gave up after 10kms. Sometimes you feel sorry for these outback towns. They were built on sheep and cattle trading but that has disappeared in the traditional way. They have tried to fill the void with tourism but for us in Winton's case it just didn't work. We're off to Boulia.
