Richmond QLD

Our trip from Charters Towers, heading west, to Richmond (maplink) was one of the bumpiest ones yet. We couldn’t believe how much we bounced along the road – had to slow down to 80km/hr at some points.

We pulled into the Lakeview Caravan Park for 3 nights, which was really nice but everyone is packed in “real tight”.

A walk around Fred Tritton Lake (next to the caravan park) followed by drinks up at the barby shelter afterward was a great way to end the 1st day.

A look around this lovely and very tidy town showed up some gems, one of which was the Cambridge Store, a restored store from the 1800’s. Another was the stockman statue out front of the Council offices.

Sunrise over Fred Tritton Lake was stunning. Check out these shots…
