Winter in Queensland is an ideal time for a road trip, while it can get cold in the western parts of the state the days are usually fine and clear, we were not dissappointed.

This trip takes in Heifer Creek, Steele Rudds famous pub at Nobby, then Millmerran, Jimbour and Chinchilla out on the Downs, further west then as far as Charleville where we turned left and dropped south to Cunnamulla. From here we headed east passing through Bollon, Saint George, the iconic Nindigully Pub, Goondiwindi, Yelarbon and back home via the Cunningham and Warrego highways...all up a great trip of some 2300km.

Heifer Ck, near Gatton, Queensland.This photo was taken on a previous visit actually. The location attracts many 'Grey nomads'...if someone should light a fire they can expect to have many new friends join in...on this occasion even light rain didn't spoil things...we simply scurried back to our RV's to get umbrella's and raincoats!. This campsite is mostly grass and unless heavy rain falls access is good.

Nobby, a small town on the Darling Downs, Qld Author Arthur Hoey Davis best known as Steele Rudd wrote many of his 'Dad and Dave' series here, so visitors are told anyway. Just two power points available here ($3) so first in best dressed. There is plenty of room however if you dont need power (free). There is also a memorial here for Sis Kenny famous for her Polio treatment, Sis Kenny is buried in Nobby cemetery. All roads to Nobby are sealed, narrow in places but generally good. PS, 2 xtra pow
