Darwin Road Trip - Day 2

Hi again,

Day 2 - Biloela to Longreach was a great trip, roads were very good.  It was a full 9 hour day of driving.  I did the am leg and Noel did the pm leg.  We stopped for lunch at Emerald at a new shopping centre and had Subway then after a quick 30 minute stop back in the car to continue on.
Noticed a lot of road kill kangaroos on the stretch of highway from Barcaldine to Longreach but thankfully we haven't hit anything with our bull bar other than a couple of butterflies........sorry butterfly lovers....couldn't be avoided :(

Stopped in Barcaldine to see the "Tree of knowledge" pictured below.
Arrived in Longreach at 5:00pm and settled in to the hotel.

Tomorrow off to the Stockman's Hall of Fame and the Qantas Museum.  Off to bed now for an early night after all that driving and a well earned sleep in tomorrow.

Until tomorrow happy stamping everyone
Janette
