Finks Crossing Revisited

Travelling back to Brisbane from Gladstone I took another detour which took me back to Biggenden again, through Wondai, as far as Kingaroy on the first day.

There were several unexpected delights along the way, one of which was Finks Crossing.  I was doing my best to follow the two hour rule, stopping every couple of hours for a stretch or rest.  I followed the side road about 100 metres to a car park, with a grassed area.  The grass was mostly dead but it looked a pleasant place all the same.  

The restrooms were as nice as you'd find anywhere - on the outside.  You can't expect miracles in an areas where there is no sewerage but the chemical loos work well enough.

Two blokes were returning to their vehicle carrying a light tin dingy above their heads so I walked in the direction from which they had come and came upon this lovely scene.

  I had misfiled most of these photos.


  1. The posts are coming thick and fast today.
    The grass looks very dry.
    It's strange reading about massive countries. I can drive almost anywhere I want to go in under two hours.

  2. It's good to take a detour sometimes. It can really make a trip that more interesting.

  3. A little corner of the world that at least some folks knew about.

  4. A lovely surprise to find. We sure do need rain.

  5. Car park? I know what it is but I'm always surprised to hear it instead of parking lot.

  6. A nice place to rest your eyes from the road and your back from sitting too much.

  7. I found the monotony of long, often straight, drives in the heat in Western Australia demanded very frequent stops but I can't ever recall finding a sight like this at one. I'd have been tempted in for a dip.

  8. That looks like a great choice for a rest stop! You really did cover a lot of kilometres while here in Aus!


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
