12 hours driving interspersed with breaks and over 918km later, we arrived in Dalby. Beautiful country. Lots of trees, surprisingly green with a great deal of water still laying in the low areas, emus, cattle, a few goats, horses, and a couple of wedge – tailed eagles.

Excitement for the day came when the lights picked up a kangaroo standing in the centre of the road. Quick on the breaks, we came to a standstill. The roo went first to the left, then on a whim changed direction and headed to the right. No wonder they are killed!
