Longreach to Winton

We did a few of the tourist things in Longreach. The 747 had bits cut away here and there so we could see into cargo bays, behind wall and floor panels, and in the cockpit. We also enjoyed a stock-whip making demonstration at the Stockmans Hall of Fame.

Just outside Winton, on top of a jump up (mesa), is a great view and the Australian Age of Dinosaurs. It's a fairly new museum with most of their fossils still encased in rock. The tour took us through the work area where staff and volunteers painstakingly remove rock to reveal the fossils within.
