Day 66: Longreach School of Distance Education (LSODE) and Stockmans Hall of Fame.
Another early start sees us at the School of the Air. We are given a tour of the facility, and shown how the teacher interacts with the child over the radio and the Internet.
Afterwards, we head to the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame for an 11am show. We are treated to a show depicting the life of a stockman, with plenty of sideshow gags. It was a lot of fun.
For lunch, we go back to the van and chill out for an hour or so. We then head back to the Stockmans Hall of Fame, and spend the afternoon reading all about the heritage of the stockman.
There are hours, if not days of fascinating reading, and we all do well to last the distance. When we leave, it's late and we are all pretty exhausted...but it's been a great day.
Longreach is high up on our 'loved' list so far...
