Cooyar- Palm National park- Aussies smallest National Park, lovely little walk. Then lunch at Cooyar pub, and camping in area accessed by road next to pub, has power for small amount, and has a swing bridge accross the creek which supposedly has platypus. Muntapa Railway Tunnel just up the road, old stone railway tunnel well worth a visit and a walk through.

Yarraman- top of the hill- forestry park lunch area at site of original forestry workers family home, they planted lots of jacarandas many years ago. Lovely spot.

Windorah- free camp on the banks of the Cooper Ck, lots of birds, very peaceful. Lots of choice of campsites, rubbish bins provided, and one toilet near the bridge.

Morven, east of Mitchell, camp at sportsground, hot showers and toilets for a donation. Walking distance to the pub for a great meal

Cawnpore lookout- You probable are not going this way, but one of our favourite places ever!! Between Winton and Boulia, not far from Middleton pub. Fantastic lookout up a jumpup, and another higher jumpup to climb next to it. Amazing views. Call into the Middleton pub for an entertaining shop from the bar guy.

Hope this helps
