The town of Winton is small but quaint and I reckon it has alot more charm than Longreach and out of the 2 I think I prefer Winton. I took a few photos of in and around town.
The above photo is a tribute to Banjo Patterson and below is a photo of a windmill and some wagon that I forgot to go over and read about it - but I am sure it is off some important significance to the town!
The main street has at least 3 pubs and here is one below!
Below is a photo of the main street
And all along the main street the rubbish bins are inside these dinosaur feet moulds! I suppose since dinosaurs are one of the major tourist draw cards to the town.
Tomorrow we head up the Kennedy Development road to Hughenden and I am rather excited to be going on this road as it is not exactly a major highway and according to Neil there will be no road trains - the campground is on the corner of this development road and I just had to point out every road train that came from Hughenden on this road and every road train that is going to hughenden on this road! It is a narrower road - basically it is a single lane road and we have to get off the road whenever a truck or car or caravan comes from either direction! so it will be a 3 day ride to Hughenden.
