Day 15 – Winton to Longreach

Day looks wet and windy; will be a tourist day in Winton and then a short hop to Longreach. We had a late start and the owner wanted a group photo. We obliged [see photo].

We then visited the truck museum which was extremely interesting for all of us. Reg could identify all of the trucks and had a story for most as well [see photos].

Then we visited the Waltzing Matilda interpretive centre, a fantastic modern building with a very good coffee shop and many interesting story rooms and displays. Very impressive and delightfully friendly. At 11.30 we left for Longreach; extremely strong head winds and some rain, hard work for the As but we completed the 180kms in 4.30hrs with hourly stops. All cars running well. Glad needed to change a rear tyre as it had run out of tread and a bulge was appearing, but still up. Cars need a good check-over tomorrow as we will spend 2 nights in Longreach; washing to be done . Qantas Museum and Stockman’s Hall of  Fame to be visited, and the Botanical Walkway.

What people see from behind the team.
