Day 2: Nindigully-Yuleba (240km) We left Nindigully, heading straight for St George. We had a look at the winery , where they make the very humorously named “St Georges F***ing good port”. Most people bought a bottle because of the name. Once we were stocked up on Port, we made the drive north to the little town of Surat. This is a lovely town with some Cobb and Co History. They had an informative museum there with artefact from the Cobb and Co Days. We refuelled our stomachs and started the drive towards Yuleba; along the old Cobb and Co Track, taking out the need to visit Roma. The track was interesting with little information boards at every “Change Station” along the track. The track was also situated along the “Boo region”, where some very lovely “Bees” may be seen. ;-). We arrived at Yuleba and set up camp on the open lawn. We had a pub dinner as usual.
Day 3: Yuleba-Oakey (260km) Everyone was up early and rearing to go as we had the awful task of driving back home. We were about to start when we noticed that our DA officer had a slow leak in his tyre. This involved a demonstration on how to “Safely” jack a car up, change a tyre and change a broken valve stem on a tyre. We still managed to leave on time as we headed east to Oakey stopping off at Miles for fuel and coffee. We arrived at Oakey at midday, had some lunch in the park, and parted out ways. This was a brilliant trip with a great group of people. It was great to have a taste of the touring life; to set up in the afternoon and get going in the morning. What was amazing was that the middle of the days were 25 degrees, then at night, it froze to single digits. This trip has only ignited the passion to travel more of the land. Thank you Simon and Emily for the great trip and running commentary (when we could keep up and be in radio range).
