Is it a bird, is it a plane...no its Super Retro Roamers
We had a nice quiet time there, nice park, lots of grass, but plenty of red dust as well, and we met a lot of great people, namely Geoff and Margaret who were our next door neighbours. Nice couple who had set up a couple days before us and were to leave a day or two behind us.
Goeff & MargaretWhat did we do for eleven days.....not much really. The bride was busy and I was just the social little butterfly as I am. I did however go to the bitter springs for a float down the stream, but apart from that did very little...now where did all those days go.
In a previous post on our way up to Mataranka, we stayed at the Homestead CP, and I was quite critical of Mataranka and the CP. Well the locals are still a bit of a worry, but that's the Territory. Enough said about that.
All tucked up
Now seeing we were on a roll to get back to Queenlsand, we just back tracked back the same as we came up. So from Mataranka, we went to Daly Waters for two days. The bride was busy so I went for a walk along the John McDonals Stuart Heritage Trail, which was extremely interesting.

The trail is not all that long, however there is lots of different stops with the various signs.
More info on the Stuart Tree.
The was an "S' on this tree somewhere
From the trail I ventured forth to the Daly Waters Airport. Now this airport is still an active strip, however was a major staging post during WW2. The hanger still stands however in pretty poor condition. However there is a lot of information about the hey days of WW2 around the walls of the hanagar.

Speaks for itself
