At Muttaburra for a day

Along the road

We have left the van at Ilfracombe and have gone for an overnight trip to Muttaburra via Aramac. Muttaburra is the home of the famous Muttaburrasaurus and about 100 people thereabouts. The Muttaburrasaurus was found in 1963 and is displayed in the Qld Museum, there is a full scale replica in the park here. The town heritage walk is facinating as it takes you past vacant blocks of land on which the buildings long gone once stood, I think this is were that phrase a ‘vacant look’ must have originated.

Weather continues to be great, late winter and it was 30 degrees thereabouts today, sitting on the verandah of the motel as I write this at 10pm in shorts and tee shirt. Heading back to Ilfracombe tomorrow via Longreach.

Percival had a good look at the Muttaburrasaurus langdoni, to give it its full name.
