Normanton #4

We had last weekend off & because restrictions were lifted a few days prior we were allowed to drove 500klms, we took a trip to Georgetown 300klms from Normanton to visit great mates Jenelle & Darren who we met in Tassie – they are managing the Goldfields Caravan Park. It was a nice drive, we called into Croydon & got a snack then continued on our way.

Awesome time with Jenelle & Darren at Georgetown, spent the night sitting by a fire spinning a few yarns……hahaha. Garfield the caravan cat is pretty cute.

Called into Cumberland Chimney & Dam to have a look – a really nice spot.

Welcome to Croydon, very cute.
We actually saw quite a lot of these live critters while driving to Georetown.

The Croydon Club Hotel, just over half way to Georgetown.

Not long after Croydon we passed a few riders moving their moos to a different location along the highway.
Crossing the Etheridge River at Georgetown
Spent the night with great mates – Jenelle & Darren who are managing the Goldfields Caravan Park.
“Garfield” – the caravan park cat, 14 years young.
Had a couple of butcherbirds & babies hanging around
Always the bower birds make their presents felt.
Party time…………lotz of fun.
The morning after…
A couple of families of wild pigs enjoying the water & waters edge.
Peter checking the pigs out.
Called into Cumberland Chimney & Dam, approximately 20klms west of Georgetown on our return trip – quite a lovely spot.
Last nights dessert which didn’t happen so enjoyed it with a coffee at this quite amazing spot. Jenelle is a fantastic cook. 🙂
Snazzy looking ablutions although I did not test them out.
This was seen on both sides of the road to the Cumberland Chimney.

  2. Love reading your blogs and adventures and your pics are always lovely. All well here, actually enjoyed Corona isolation, I’m not working for 10wks, according to Ed Qld apparently I’m a vulnerable worker being over 65, woohoo….. got to get some good things out of getting older.
    Thoroughly loving my time off, seeing a lot of Harry (oh and also Jen) Jen comes over a couple of times a week at 6am and goes off for a 10klm run. When she gets back, she takes Harry and I for a walk. On a Monday, I head over in the morn so she can go to her training session, Harry and I head out for a walk in the pram. I’m loving it, didn’t realise I would be so smitten with a grand baby. And of course he’s a good bub.
    Ross and I are well, spending time sorting out cupboards and reorganising photo albums into electronic files. Nice to slow down.
    Love for now, Rob and Ross
