Walkabout Creek Hotel

While driving around the western parts of Queensland in September 2019, I just had to pay a visit to the Walkabout Creek Hotel (of Crocodile Dundee fame), where I unrolled my swag out the back and spent the night. A few too many beers followed.....

All these photos were taken with an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mk II using a 12-100mm f/4 IS PRO lens.

When travelling the roads of outback western Queensland, you have to compete with road trains such as this one (Type 2 Road Train - AAB Quad), which came thundering past the Walkabout Creek Hotel as I was taking photos.

Opportunity for a "selfie" in the pub.

Inside the pub. Look at the sign above the billiards table. If you're wondering about that lack of patrons, the invasion starts at about sunset.

Not long before the sun.....

And the sun has risen.
