Monday September 18

Time to checkout what Blackall has, this town is nestled on the banks of the Barcoo River and offers plenty from the Black Stump, the Woolscour, a must is a visit to the Universal Garden Centre to see the historic display of Jack Howe, he achieved the incredible feat of shearing 321 sheep in seven hours and 40mins with blade shears a record which has never been broken. As we are about to leave this lively little town we come across Ram Park which is home to many historic buildings after a hour of wandering we are back on the Matilda Way to our next stop Barcaldine and of course we stop at the Tree of Knowledge, our next stop which will be home for 3 night they call the heart of outback Queensland Longreach!
