Smithy’s Aussie Thomson River Cruise, Longreach

_DSF4875

A late afternoon river cruise was the prelude to a lovely evening, even though the river water was dirty, nature worked its magic and gave us some spectacular reflections and colours.  With a nice glass of bubbles and nibbles being handed around, it was relaxing and our host told us of the indigenous history, the chinese market gardeners and the stories of the European graziers and stockmen and women who made a living from the River.

Our dinner on the river bank, in a rustic setting under the stars with a formal meal and entertainment from a fantastic comedian and musician in Doug Stewart. It was a wonderful night.
