Hot underground water is found over a vast area. Other spars were in some Queensland towns. The fresh water can be very smelly at first then it settles, some has too many minerals to safely use on the garden etc and is treated.
Years ago, an early bore in Moree, one of the first, was drilled to round 800 meters with the help of English experts. Unfortunately it flooded the small township.
We are rather fortunate to enjoy a low key road trip, unlike some less fortunate in this country let alone in half of the world.
Some of the northern jungle is like being in a non first world country yet is really safe and benign.
Doubt I would swap it for a prissy pristine generic resort where there is no environment to really come to grips with.

No. Far more important. A ride for support for the drought stricken and attention to the mental health problems the drought situation brings with it.
Some others said that prayer for rain was part of it. Beyond Blue?
Much of Queensland is in drought.

Sunset, Hughendon, central northern Queensland, last night.
Qeensland community has a share of difficulties. We were not too far distant from these.
Ravenshoe had a very drastic accident in the little shopping centre.
The Waltzing Matilda centre burnt down last night in Winton, we heard sirens last night in Hughenden one of the next big towns.
(A loss in Origin last night)

On 11 June 1770, Captain Cook and his ship The Endeavour, ran aground on a reef a little north of this point. In the Coral Sea off the coast of far north Queensland.
Photo taken this very morning while standing on Cape Tribulation about which Cook's journal states ...here began all our troubles...
Visibility was not good this morning with frequent light rain showers.

Carnarvon National Park was by passed this time but it is a very interesting one well worth a visit.
