Later he took the Nissan Patrol around, but I must have been too fearful to take a photo.
After Toowoomba, we headed north in the vague direction of Rockhampton. After a few hours driving, we pulled off at a caravan park near Bjelke Petersen Dam. Given his impact on Australian Politics in my youth it seems appropriate to run into the name in Queensland.
The spot it a favourite for fishermen – the urinal in the men’s toilet features a catch limit poster – but also has many family groups. It was a pleasant spot and the first camp where we did not run the heater at all.
On the following morning, we had some visitors checking for food.
Margo’s family in Toowoomba heard about our visit to the Corwa Japanese Gardens and wanted to show us theirs.
It was part of the University of Southern Queensland, and was more an Australian Garden (Australian plants and picnic benches – no tea houses) in the Japanese style.
The gardens were well used with several groups having picnics and gatherings at the various locations. It struck me as an ideal place for a philosophy tutorial!
I would say the Cowra gardens pip these, but it was an excellent morning mosey.
