Popped a Cork at Old Cork Homestead

We left Julia Creek free camp and headed south to Kynuna then onto Winton. We decided we would like to visit the Dinosaur Stampede site at Larch Quarry, so headed down to stay the night at Old Cork Homestead, an abandoned homestead originally settled in 1865 and finally abandoned in the 1960s. The ravages of time and thieving visitors have taken their toll but it was nice to spend the night on the banks of the Diamantina River watching the shooting stars in an outback astral show. It turned quite cool and as there was a strong breeze so no chance of a fire. Off to Larch Quarry tomorrow.
