Currawinya National Park July 2020
Currawinya National Park – July 2020
 
Trip in planning to be undertaken over 9 days (Saturday to Sunday) during the month of July.  Timing is dependant on travellers.

There are currently 3 vehicles doing this trip.  As two of the vehicles aren't club members, this is a non club trip, however club members are more than welcome.
 
Day 1 – Depart Brisbane, meeting point Caltex, Blacksoil. 
·      Cecil Plains
·      Moonie
·      St George
·      Overnight camp at Thruston National Park
596km, 6hr 40m
40km north-east of Bollon and 102km west of St George. 
Situated in the heart of the mulga lands, Thrushton National Park conserves a remnant of original vegetation within an area of extensive clearing. Gazetted in 1990, the park consists of flat, sandy plains and levees containing large stands of mulga and areas of spinifex with scattered ironbark, cypress pine and kurrajong. Neabul Creek, which flows through the park, is lined with river red gums and coolibahs.
 

Day 2 – Depart Thruston National Park
·      Bollon
·      Cunnamulla
·      Eulo
290km, 3hr 15m

Famous not only for the infamous “Eulo Queen” and the hotel named after her but also for the abundant local produce and product as well as opal and craft which can all be purchased in the town. Enjoy a coffee at the new Eulo Store and ask the locals about the recent Megafauna discoveries – giant wombats, no less!

The Five Mile Waterhole at Eulo is the perfect spot to throw a line in and catch Yellowbelly, Catfish and Yabbies. The area has good camping.

Day 6 – Depart Ourimpee Waterhole
·      Hungerford
·      Fords Bridge
Fords Bridge is a nondescript hamlet lying between Green Creek and the Warrego River, barely a kink in the road between Bourke and Hungerford. These days Fords Bridge consists of nothing more than the Warrego Hotel and a handful of houses and sheds. The Warrego Hotel is worthy of a mention as it was constructed in 1913 of mud bricks and may be the sole surviving hotel in Australia that boasts this method of construction.
171km, 2hr 10m
 

Day 7 – Depart Fords Bridge
·      Bourke
·      Grawin Estate
If you think the Ridge is unique, head out to the Grawin; the opal fields where it all began. Full of unique welcoming characters, a landscape that often resembles a moonscape, a few places to wet the whistle along the way, and even a place to swing the clubs. The Grawin is a not to be missed experience.
Club in the Scrub, Glengarry Hilton, Free camping at Sheepyard Hotel.
330km, 4hr 20m
