Where I stayed
The pub was just so interesting, and was the focal point of the whole area. When you walk in the first thing you notice are the bras and undies hanging above the bar, then you notice heaps of t-shirts hanging from the roof, all with messages written on them by their respective owners. The staff behind the bar were hand feeding butcher birds which were perched on the bar, and there were lots of mad signs everywhere
The dinner was in a big covered courtyard, and the food was excellent. At 7.30 the entertainer, named Chilli, started his performance and he had everyone in stitches until he finished. He told tales about his life as a drover and horse breaker, he sang country music, and told bush poetry. He was very, very good, and we had a fabulous time.
The camp draft was great to see, a real taste of the true Australian country life. We went out to the historic airfield and hangar, saw the flying fox which was used to ferry supplies across the river, and had a wonderful time chatting to other caravanners over the three days. A great experience, and one that will be hard to beat.
