June 21st...DAY 5
John at the edge of a water hole in the Warrego River

Before we left our overnight camp this morning we walked along the dry riverbed of the Warrago River. The night temperature had lowered to 3 deg so the sunny morning was welcome. It is amazing how the day has warmed to 25 deg. Tonight is the longest night so maybe another 9 hours of sleep!
Onward north we have travelled through Cunnamulla and Charleville. Tonight we have parked at a commercial Bush Camp just out of Charleville. There are only a few facilities... potable water, rubbish disposal, toilet dump, a huge mown area to park on and a community camp fire which we joined  at 5.00 pm with BYO drinks.
The country side today has been very dry again but Mulga, Bimble Box and Pine trees line the road. We were lucky enough to see a very healthy looking echidna crossing the road.
