We spent some time checking out the Outback near Charters Towers, an old gold mining town. The area's landscape was a lot of flat ground, mostly dry river beds and BIG sky. We saw lots of ant hills that were several feet high, and we spotted an emu!
This little guy was in a palm tree next to our campsite in the Outback. He was very friendly and curious, and was super happy when given a piece of bread.
