We drove from Laura to Hanns River Roadhouse, a distance of 87 kms from Fairview. The road is sealed most of the way with only a couple of gravel patches. We drove over two rivers that currently are just sand. There was water in Hann River near the roadhouse. Its a beautiful tropical oasis in the outback with bromeliads and Mandela flowers and lots of greenery. We had a sandwich that was delicious and Marg had a small salad bowl. It was pleasant sitting in the open area looking at the Brahmin calf lowing in a small enclosure.
A Tow truck pulled in with a road train that had overturned…the driver had fallen asleep at the wheel. You can purchase fuel here. Camping is $15 a night and you need to book if you want a powered site. The toilets were meticulously clean and there were washing machines lined up outside the toilet facilities. It looks a great place to camp at and the staff were friendly and happy.
