Travelling Australia - Journal 2013
3-4 August 2013

The weather for our stay in Winton was sunny with blue sky, warm to hot days and cold nights. There was no rain as the drought continued to depress the rural economy.

We mostly stayed in Winton while we were there, buying coffee at the bakery on Saturday and Sunday. I made one trip outside Winton to have a look at the paddocks and found them dry and drought-stricken. One of the reasons for stopping in Winton was to assess where we would go next with a visit to Quilpie or Thargomindah as possibilities but that part of Queensland is normally drier than Winton so we expected the drought would have had even worse effect there. We decided to end the trip and head home to Casino.
