Cowboys and girls on the Inland Way

After learning about the local oilfields and natural gas deposits by going through the Big Rig museum at Roma, then being tempted to a cappuccino and pumpkin scone, we hit the Inland Way to St George, southwestern Queensland, Australia.

This is a stock route and we shared the highway with two herds of cattle and their stockmen and a stock girl – much more interesting than yesterday’s roadworks, although we had some road trains carrying ore.

We are back on the red earth and have now left the long grass for mulga scrub.
