August 2016: Outback Rains

Hitting the road through central Queensland the plan was to enjoy a few days at the Birdsville Races. Unfortunately rains caused a change of plans.  Despite this it was amazing seeing the outback come to life.

I can see why you should not drive through floodwaters!

The usual dry dusty plains 

The wild flowers spring to life making the most of the liquid gold.
