A May 2003 trip
to Queensland by Gypsy Canuck
Quote: Working our way back to Sydney, we travelled the bichimen Matilda Highway from Longreach, a real Western town, through many more to Dubbo, a small town in Queensland, through wonderful desert and winelands.

There is a park down by the Warrego River to have a picnic and there were very few flies to bother you. The water is brown, but the flowers are multicolored and bright, and it is a peaceful place.
Kangaroos, emus, and eagles are everywhere and can be seen while you drive along. It is like being in a zoo in Canada.
The post office building was very impressive and looked very Victorian, and the flowers here were bright. The post office was built in 1879 with the upper floor being added some years later. It survived the 1890 flood, the town's worst flood when the river broke its banks and the levees. It was a short visit here.
