Back to the ‘mainland’

Disembarked from the ‘spirit of tasmania’ & drove to Yarrasville in Melbourne & spent the night with Lisa(Peter’s youngest daughter), always great to see this young lady, the following nite at Carole & Costa’s (Peter’s sister in Sydney) – an awesome dinner, thankx. Spent the next few days around Casino & celebrated Margaret’s (Peter’s Mum) 91st birthday with family, great time as usual.

Peter flew to Kununurra 5\4\19 & I hung around Brisbane til the 15/4/19. Visited Dad most days, based at Ipswich at Les & Al’s & discovered that my gorgeous Jenna is pregnant.

15/4/19 – Jeanet, a great friend of mine & I set off north, stayed 3 nights at Bargara (near Bundaberg) with great mates – Rae & Gary, headed north, called into ‘Dingo Park’, a very well run feedlot west of Townsville – an amazing set up.

Spent Easter at Cardwell (half way between Townsville & Cairns) with some more amazing friends, we participated in an ambrose golf game with Mandy – so much fun.

Drove to Cairns, Jeanet flying back to Brisbane while I continue on, called into Kuranda for quick look then onto Georgetown to Jenelle & Daren’s(met & worked with this couple in Tassie), had so much fun. Jenelle & I drove out to Cobbold Gorge(approx. 92klms south of Georgetown) & spent the night – a lovely spot. Normanton next port of call but only for a toilet stop, had a few big driving days then arrived at Katherine, NT, caught up with my awesome son Ben.

Cattle lining up to eat their dinner

A specially made up feed mix is given to the cattle via a tractor & trailer into the feed troughs.

Large rectangle bales of rhodes grass are mulched.

While the hay is being mulched it is watered down.

A special blended mix of grains & vitamins are then added, each yard of cattle has a different mix according to their age.
