Clarke Creek - Yep BA again.

Two nights and three days to get to Clarke Creek, 720km an easy drive. Managed to link up with some Highway Wanderers for one night at Kabra on the outskirts of Rockhampton and get the goss on where everyone is and what's been happening around the traps.

Next day arrived at Clarke Creek to find a small but friendly camp. Some volunteers, about 4 small groups, are camping on properties but most go out from the base camp each day. Talk around the campfire suggests this will be a new experience, these are very big properties. Fifteen minutes to get to the farm/station then forty-five minutes through the paddocks to get to the fence requiring attention.

Not much at Clarke Creek but fortunately, there are communications, not sure I would last long without access to the net.

Early morning Clarke Creek.
