Miles Museum, Barcaldine, Longreach & Qantas museum
We stopped off @ Sue's Dad's cattle property 60 Kms east of Charleville for a few days whilst he adjusted to having to move about the house with a walking frame with his R) leg in a splint as a result of a small cow kicking him in the side of his leg & fracturing head of ?? Tibia (outer lateral to the knee cap).
I found this little guy crossing the road as I was driving near the house.
Have seen 3 of them now in 5 days, & we think we've had our 'fix' for awhile until........................
& in the grocery store................ so that was Miles Museum, left out plenty more, but didn't want to bore you all yet on Museum tours.....................
The next Museum was in Barcaldine - The Australian Workers Museum - all labour orientated
Another Museum - this time Qantas in Longreach
Want to know some more gems on this baby - it weighs 377.84 tonnes fully loaded, can fly 570kms / hr, takes on 162 tonnes of fuel for some flights. Get this - the internal temp in each of the 4 x $6.5million engines (new) reaches 1,305*C. More than enough to fry a few eggs.
