Our Camping Spot at Julia Creek
We have been camped up next to the Hughenden Show Grounds last night and will be staying again tonight. It is $6 per night with no power or water.

We left Julia Creek Tuesday and travelled to Richmond.

This beautiful flower grows abundantly in the area it is called Flinders Poppy
Hughenden has links to a prehistoric past with over 3000 fossil specimens from the cretaceous period have been found near the area, varieties include many marine reptiles,
Muttaburrasaurus, Hughenden Sauropod, Qld Pterosaur and a large selection of shells, molluscs and fish. This is further evidence that this part of the country was originally covered by sea. We travelled 63kms today to investigate Porcupine National Park and again we weren't disappointed the gorge was spectacular even with its volcanic black rocks. We move on tomorrow and will probably pull up halfway to Charters Towers.
