Soon on our way again, onto Springsure, no more road works to delay us here. Jude posted our Christmas Cards and after a brief walk around the town we drove the short distance to the free camp at Virgin Rock, just out of town. There we had a few quiet beers with Carl who was going to set up a stall at the Friday Markets in Springsure the following afternoon. The Rock features are light by Spot Lights at night and this looks very impressive.

Oh, and the farmers wife is at home too! I wonder if scones, jam and cream are on the menu for weary travellers.
Virgin Rock and Zamia Range is clearly visible from the Main Street of Springsure.

The Lion's Picnic area and adjacent free camping area.
Every picnic area seems to have a Fordson Tractor in place.
Just caught the last sun before it sets behind Zamia Range. Shame about the power lines spoiling the picture.
Early morning photo of our camp and the backdrop of the Zamia Range. It's a lovely place to camp but it's on black soil, you wouldn't want to be in here if rain was imminent.
