Thallon then Nindigully Pub

After leaving Toobeah pub we headed west, drove to Thallan, a small country town located in the Balone Shire on the Moonie River approx 600klms west of Brisbane. The town silo’s are surrounded by prime grain growing country making them a central hub for other areas, in late June 2017 the painting of the silo’s began, the 1st of their kind in QLD & are included in the Australian Silo Art Collection. William the giant Northern Hairy Nosed Wombat statue is also a crowd drawer as well as the many other statues in the town. The Francis is the local pub & they make an excellent steak sanga(we indulged).

We headed north approximately 60klms to our camp spot for the night at Nindigully Pub located on the Moonie River(free camp with great hot showers & clean toilets), we had an amazing meal there & can definitely recommend both these places for a visit. The Moonie River has a lot of birdlife & a few people were catching fish, don’t know what they were. The ‘Paperback Heroe’ a romantic comedy(starring Hugh Jackman) was predominantly shot here.

Drove through St George, saw lotz of cotton. Had a brief stop in Cunnamulla for a few supplies & to check out the ‘swagman’. Drove on heading SW to our next stop Noccundra, saw lotz of emu & 1 particular fellow driving in opposite direction probably a little too quick gave us a parting gift…….you get that.
