Continuing the trip north, we travel through Monto (overnight free camp), Biloela, Moura (free camp), Rolleston, Springsure (overnight free camp at Virgin Rock) and then finally into Emerald for a couple of nights.
Monto is close to the Cania Gorge and Cania Dam, where we spent a week or so last year with friends Alan and Anne fishing and catching redclaw.
Biloela is named after the aboriginal word for the white cockatoo.
Virgin Rock, one of our overnight stops is 4 Kms north of Springsure. It is on the eastern side of Mount Zamia and has a naturally formed likeness to the Virgin Mary and Child (looked just like a normal rock to us !!). The spectacular cliffs are floodlit at night.
Next stop Emerald.
