Gladstone’s a city that manages to combine great views with heavy industry and has a very nice library. I see a lot of libraries in my hunt for data.
Rockhampton feels huge by comparison, spread out, loads of old Queenslander houses.
We stopped off at the rodeo at St Lawrence which is next to a wetlands, and has free camping. So there was a heap of wildlife, including a giant goose which is apparently a Bustard. I’ll say!
