... in. We were in town for supplies and a climb to the lookout on top of Castle Hill. The pink granite monolith sits solitarily in the middle of town and dominates the skyline.

We continued through driving to a rest stop between there and Mackay, on the second longest stretch of highway with nothing on it in Australia, and again stayed at a rest stop on the side of the road.
