St George to Mitchell

St George to Mitchell. Took the direct route which saves 100km and bypasses Roma. No towns on the route but a huge amount of road kill on the roadside. Saw large irrigated areas just out of St George. Not sure what but may have been rice.
Emu and chicks on the way. Staying overnight at the Major Mitchell park. Mitchell was an early explorer of the area. 2012 floods here were the highest ever recorded. Spent some time in the artesian hot spa. Temp around 38C. Communal fire tonight. Booked in to the Evening Star Tourist Park near Charleville for Thursday and Friday nights. Weather low 20s and clear. Beautiful.
Have purchased a Telstra data dongle for email etc as Virgin / Optus is patchy here.
