We left Lawn Hill, hoping to return another day, and started making our way to the Queensland/Northern Territory border. We stopped for lunch and a last beer in Camooweal. The last beer turned into the last three beers as we ate our delicious burgers purchased from the petrol station whilst watching Collingwood v Carlton on the pub TV. We then drove 69km on from Camooweal, into the Territory, and set up camp at a popular roadside stop.
It was a cool night at Avon Downs, and an even cooler morning the next day. We got up early and headed for Barkly Homestead where we had to inspect the tiling in the toilets that our friend, Glen Phelan had done when he and his family passed through here a few years ago. Pretty dodgy job by the plasterer.
