Something to do while you're in Richmond (NW Qld), other than looking for fossils.


We went to Richmond last week expressly to do a tour - Hampstead Tours - see http://www.outbackqueensland.com.au/news/hampstead-tours/

We did the tour on Friday last week & found it to be good value for the money, good food & an almost non-stop commentary of this couple's life, the history of the sheep initially & then cattle stations & of Richmond itself. We were picked up at 7am & returned at 5pm. They gave $10 off for Seniors & run three days a week.

We also went birding around the area later - especially the sewerage works (a bird watcher's must visit destination).

Cheers, Warren

We did that too and it was so enjoyable. The swamp paperbark forest at their home was like being in a cathedral. Highly recommended.
