Town 16: After visiting Wallaville I had a long drive before I was near to another ‘I’ve been everywhere’ town. Unfortunately this was heading inland but still relatively close to the coast and the scenery is not too interesting and can be summed up in two words – Gum Trees. However, as you move further inland and start to head into the outback things become more varied and, to me, more appealing. Traffic also reduces as you head inland and given today is the first day of the Christmas school holidays less caravans can be found. I am however puzzled by the number of cars towing boats in the dry outback.

I finally make it to within about 20 KM of Dalby when the skies open and rain pours down. I decide to stay at Dalby for the night rather than struggle on in the deluge. However, the rain clears a bit so I head out 40KM down the road to find Kumbarilla.

Kumbarilla is another of these places that has a name but little else. All I found at Kumbarilla was a railway track with two Kumbailla signes, one either side. That, is Kumbarilla.
