November 15-20, 2020
From Tara we were headed for the Carnarvon National Park area ans travelled via Miles, Roma and Injune, stopping around each on the way. Gil Weir is a free camp about 5km South of Miles on Dogwood Creek and has a toilet, tables and a rubbish skip maintained by the Western Downs Council. Main image is the view from a small jetty alongside the camping area and below a few other images.
 
 
Roma: Next major centre along the highway after Miles is the regional centre of Roma, here we stayed at the Roma Gun Club who have constructed a basic Caravan Park with over 70 sites and three sets of amenities including two Laundries. All the parking is on a gravel surface but there are trees around the edges and a good shady verandah at the Club House which opens daily from 4-6 pm. While here we stocked up on groceries as this is the last major Supermarket (Woolworths) we will see for over a week.

 

 
Injune: The closest small town to Carnarvon Gorge and the National Park when approaching from the South, Injune has a population of a bit over 400 and provides camping at Possum Park, the local Racecourse. Usually hosting up to 8 race meetings a year it has not seen an event since Covid began and the next season is hoped to start in June 2021. The campground here includes power and water (or unpowered if wanted) for $15/night and has a modernised amenities block.
 
 
This morning (Thursday) we were awoken at 5.45 am by this mob of screeching Cockies who obviously took a liking to our van and were even looking down on us through the skylight above the bed!
From here we are travelling into the “Top Moffat Section” of Carnarvon National Park for four days, a 160km gravel road from here on which we have to return afterwards before continuing our travels.
