After a brief stop at Chain Lagoon, I drove on to Isla Gorge, where I had breakfast and offered a stern word to the trio of pied currawongs that kept landing on my car. They may have been trying to warm themselves up, because it was beak-chillingly cold, but I suspect they were really aiming to dismantle the windscreen wipers. They had that look about them.
Isla Gorge is on the eastern end of the Central Queensland Sandstone Belt. Just off the Leichhardt Highway, it's the most accessible of the national parks in this region. And it is a great spot for a break. But, if you visit at this time of year, don't forget to bring gloves and a beanie.
