Clem Walton Park.

Location

Clem Walton Park, Barkly Hwy, Cloncurry QLD 4824, Australia

Info

On the Corrella Dam a spot we decided to pull into for a look. Mildly corrugated road of about 2km and across the spillway. The sign says "Not to cross if spillway flowing". Then find a spot. There must have been over 100 campers in different spots. From in amongst the trees to right on the waters edge or even in the spillway water course. Could here heaps of green budgies in the tree. Managed to spot a couple. Could not get a photo, too camouflaged. Continued in to Cloncurry along the Barkly Highway through the Selwyn Ranges. The road is starting to get windier and the hills are getting steeper. Soon the kids will get to understand what hills are. 😁😁😁

Oasis Caravan Park.

Location

Cloncurry Caravan Park Oasis, 57 Mcilwraith St, Cloncurry QLD 4824, Australia

Info

Going to spend a night at Cloncurry then head for Winton for a couple of nights and then see the dinosaur stampede south of Winton. This is a Caravan Park where you have to wait for an escort on site. We were put on a site that I thought was for one. But then I thought maybe not as we were asked keep hard over to one side. Sure enough, 10 minutes later the escort arrived with our new neighbours. Nice couple with a dog from Lake Macquarie. Hope we are not too noisy. 🤫🤫🤫 In the meantime we will have a look around Cloncurry town and stuff.

Chinaman Creek Dam.

Location

Chinaman Dam, Unnamed Road, Cloncurry QLD 4824, Australia

Info

The water source for Cloncurry. Another town with an amazing water activities dam. Heaps of wildlife. Saw an Azure Kingfisher blitz by. Too fast for me and my camera. More Pelicans, Cormorants and Cattle Egrets. I came across the Kingfisher bird again. This time it was in a tree and could only get photos from below with the Nikon. See the other galleries. In the meantime Taleah has convinced Aidyn to play in the mud and the go in the water. 🏊‍♂️🏊‍♂️🏊‍♂️

A Lookout Over Cloncurry.

Location

20°42'06.9"S 140°29'07.1"E, Barkly Hwy, Cloncurry QLD 4824, Australia

Info

No sign, but there was a road heading to the top of a small mound. So we went up, as you do! 🙄🙄🙄 It's a lookout, 😊😊😊 overlooking the town and the Cloncurry River. Cloncurry looks bigger from up here. On the way back to town we crossed the old bridge/spillway over the Cloncurry River. Well, there wasn't any sign saying you couldn't. The whole structure has been fortified by concrete laced with rather large rocks. Main Roads built it in 1961 by the looks of a plaque still attached to a headstone at the start of the floodway.
