Vernon & Lilly’s 5 Week Adventure #5
We just finished exploring Longreach. First impressions are lasting impressions and the Longreach tourist park certainly laid testament to that. This place is huge, so huge that the management wasn’t able to keep up with everyday maintenance.. Toilets and showers were average and camp kitchen really needs an upgrade. Kettle was black inside, the toaster would smoke from the stockpile of old breadcrumbs and the microwave was dirty.. All of which we carry on board but just checking for the purpose of this blog . The one saving grace was the onsite woolshed where one could buy a very nice meal and relax with some live entertainment.
We visited 2 tourist attractions, the Qantas founders museum where we did the full tour and would highly recommend this. The other was the Stockman’s hall of fame where we indulged in the dinner show.. Very entertaining but I was expecting a bit more horsemanship. Dinner was brilliant and lots of it.
We rate the Longreach tourist park at 5.5 out of 10 , but rate Longreach an 8 out of 10.
We left Longreach for Winton and decided not to refuel until Winton. The odometer picture shows the average fuel consumption we are enjoying along with the rest of our amazing VW Transporter.
