Winton

Waltzing Matilda centre this morning. A B Paterson’s song was written around here.
No Optus coverage here and Telstra broadband woefully slow.
Dinosaur centre this afternoon. Weather now clear and 20C.
Australian Dinosaur Centre Museum. About 30km out of town and a privately funded site. Many dinosaur remains in the local Winton area. Saw the lab where bones are painstakingly cleaned and restored. Wonderfull display at the main centre on top of the escarpment overlooking the plains.
