Day Twentyeight......Charleville

Last day at Charleville and can't say that either of us are all that sorry about that.   Three days in this town are probably two days too many.

Today we went to have a look at the Bilby but when we got there, there was no one to be seen.  Had a quick look around and left dissapointed (sign on gate said exactly nothing).   Decided to drive the 3k to the Information center to pick up a copy of the 'Outback Native Timber Walk Guide' that they advertise goes with a walk along the creek to help identify the 18 arid species on show, only to find the place locked up and deserted - again no notices.

Our observations of Charleville (right or wrong) are of a town that has no soul or pride and has all but given up, it appears dirty and unloved and I suspect that this photo of the Railway Hotel just about sums it up.
Broke, Busted'n'Burnt.



If it wern't for the Bailey Bar we wouldn't have stayed.
