Departing Charleville we started experiencing another change in landscape with more trees appearing as we travelled through the channel country.

Our first stop on the Natural Sciences Loop was in Quilpie where we set up camp and enjoyed the artesian spas that were available for guests to use. The water was around 38c and very relaxing.

We went exploring the town which has many pieces of artwork and in the main street and Information Centre. There is also an old water tower and the original artesian bore.

We visited The Lake before stopping off at the swimming pool to cool off.

We spent an evening at Baldy Top Lookout to experience the sunset. Magnificent views in all directions.

The second stop on “The Loop” was at the Eromanga Natural History Museum to see the Dinosaurs and Megafauna, the home of Cooper, a Titanosaur, one of the world’s largest dinosaurs.

We continued on to Thargomindah where we stopped just for a night.
