Our first day off we decided to take a drive to Chinchilla (58kls from Condamine). The road was quite rough even though it was bitumen but a nice little town (though a lot bigger than Miles or Condamine). Called into the Chinchilla Weir for morning tea - a beautiful and quiet place until a family turned up to do some water skiing - the Chinchilla Ski club uses the weir. There is a very nice free camping here with free power for 2 nights. Had lunch at the RSL club - the food was very average.

Our next day off we headed into Miles to check out the great Museum which we had heard about - they have transported lots of old buildings or built replica buildings to make a small town - just brilliant. Had lunch at the Queens Hotel - this meal was way better than the meal we had at the Chinchilla RSL.

Had our first severe tropical thunderstorm at 3am this morning with huge thunder and lightning right over our heads and lots of rain - a lot of roads around Condamine were
closed due to flooding but we were OK as long as we did not want to leave here. Everyone is very worried because of the floods at this time last year, though most people are saying that this is just normal tropical weather for this time of the year. I have included some photos of the Condamine Caravan Park where we are staying and working.
