Moving on from Cobar, we headed of to Bourke, then Walgett, Walgett has a large wheat handling terminal a couple of miles north of the town and is still rail served, finally staying at Lightning Ridge for two days, not many railways about, after our two day stay it was off again, this time heading to Queensland, the first town we encountered was Hebel, only a Hotel a shop and a couple of houses, and a sharp bend in the road, Dirrenbandi is the next (big !) town on the map, and they did have a railway , until 2010, when it was all shut down, the rails are still down, but it's all been abandoned, the next stop on the line was Noodoo, which consist's of a level crossing a station building and a couple of wheat silos, we kept driving, through St George and then onto Roma, where we stayed for two days, I did find a interesting old warehouse, not 100% sure it was railway owned, but it backs onto the railway.
Then the weather decided to warm up, from the low 20c's to the high 30c's. Time to move on, we drove on to Yeppoon (about 600k's) even with air-con it was a long hot day, checking out Yeppoon, I found on old railway station, the line had been closed in 2005, and the tracks lifted in 2007, but the station has a heritage listing on it. We had o week in a small town just outside Yeppoon, time for a rest, the temp was a nice 26c.
