I belong to a group of Solo Travellers and I’m on my to Blackall, in Queensland, for a country muster for our RV club. They say Blackall is beyond the black stump, way out west, in the never-never … all good old Aussie terms for remote locations!
As we roll along towards our destination, coming from all directions and all around Australia, the group I’m travelling with is growing in numbers.
We’ve enjoyed campfires together …
Riverfront Camps ….
And then we had a dress up night at the tiny town of Bollon, in Queensland.
Bollon only has a pub, a petrol station and a little shop, with a population around 300. We phoned ahead to let the pub know there would be about 80 of us coming into town and most of us would like to buy dinner there!
The chef promptly resigned!
How they did it I don’t know but the pub rustled up some beautiful salads and offered us a barbecue dinner and we all had a great night.
Our dress up theme was Op Shop Glamour so we all scrounged through all the charity clothing shops in the little country towns we passed through to find something ‘glamourous’ to wear. So much fun! My gown was a $5 purchase from Vinnies in Lightning Ridge 😎
For a group of people living pretty rough we didn’t scrub up too badly!
What a wonderful group of friends I have and what amazing experiences we are sharing.
….. and there’s touch of crazy about us too 😂
