Day 24

July 11, 2017

The Thirsty Camel on Dukes Street in the tiny town called Duchess!

 

(Called after an Aboriginal Lady called Duchess, what a fabulous name) met the publican Rhoda who with husband Bill have been there 17 years.

 

Information Centre at Cloncurry & their museum very interesting with lots of history about Buke & Wills including an old leather water bottle of Burke's and great paintings of them. The info centre is a real credit to Gail the manager here.

Also another great plaque of Dr. Ross Bastiaan's is here. Amazing plaques, real dedication to his craft.

 

It's getting hotter, crossed the Tropic of Capricorn a few days back.
