21/10/88

V.V. HOT  We had the alarm set for 4:30 but it was still too dark so we didn’t get up till about 5:00.  Packed up the stuff & dropped the tent & got everything into the car & headed away. Stopped & took a photo of the sun rising through the bush-fire haze.

Bushfire haze at dawn, Carnarvon Gorge National Park, Queensland.

It took about an hour and a half to get out to the tar-seal.  Got some petrol at Rolleston and some brekkie at the cafe in Springsure. Drove on to Emerald and got there about 11:00. Booked into 707 Motel & had a shower. Went and did some washing at the laundrette then relaxed for the rest of the afternoon. Had Big Rooster¹ for tea.

¹ Big Rooster (now called Red Rooster) is an Australian fast food chicken chain.
