Queensland Heritage Park……My site was perfect for me as now I had a view across fields to the Machine Museum and also the sunrise. I had a tap and plugged into the power box. The lady from the Tourist bureau and her husband who is a groundsman, helped me set up my annex and I was very happy. The toilet and shower were individual little blocks with plenty of room for everything and a washbasin with soap. They were delightful especially at night when I walked across in the full moonlight.

The Museum was free attendance to resident campers, and it was a great display of farm memorabilia and vehicles. Outside was a pond with a windmill edged with beautiful very old paperbark trees that were simply enormous and the oldest Methodist church as well as the original Railway station. Further out was the main shed housing the farm machinery.
I was lucky to see the sunset and the full Moon. The friendly staff at the centre suggested I visit Isla Gorge, so I phone a booking and that was my next stay
