Quilpie to Charleville

Day 25 - Tuesday 4 June 2013

A slow start today as we had not unhitched yesterday and packing up to leave was very quick. We eventually got away at 9:45 am for a relatively short trip of 195 kms to Charleville. We stopped for a morning coffee across the road from the Cooladdi Roadhouse.

We arrived at Charleville at about 1:00 pm and our first port of call was the nearest fuel stop as we had been running on empty for about 30 kms. We had last filled up at Eromanga and had done 315 kms using 75 litres of diesel - with only 5 litres left in the tank - and our fuel economy was a disappointing 23.8 litres/100 kms.

We checked into the Bailey Bar Top Tourist Park and were allocated the largest site in the park - one of the benefits of being a fifth-wheeler and booking ahead. At the caravan park we booked in for the roast lamb on the spit dinner for $20 per head and got the last 2 tickets. After doing a full set-up we headed for the Visitor Information Centre, the Super IGA and the Thirsty Camel. At the visitor centre we booked in for the Cosmos Observatory for Wednesday evening.
