I arrived in Queensland yesterday evening. Now I'm almost at the Tropic of Capricorn with just under 2,000 km on the odometer. Only two more days and I'll be in Cairns.

The CD player worked all the way from Goondiwindi to Biloela. Surely some mistake. Not only that, but there were no caravans on the Leichhardt Highway. Not heading north, anyway.

Once again, nothing terribly rivetting but a few firsts for the trip:
  • The first live wallaby on the road just south of Miles
  • The first road train just north of Miles
  • The first Livistona palms (on the Dawson River at Theodore)
  • The first Brahman cattle
  • The first large gangs of apostle birds (feeding on the plentiful road kill)
