Childers, Cattle Farm, and MacKay, Australia

Australia is a very very large country, so we had to make a few stops between the 1,000 kilometers of road that we had between Fraser Island and The Whitsundays. Our first one was in Childers, a one street kind of town only (in)famous because in 2009 15 backpackers died at a hostel fire there. Then our last stop was in MacKay, a city known for its sugar cane production, where we pretty much just toured their giant shopping mall. In between, we stopped at a cattle farm, learned to use a whip (no, not the “Fifty Shades of Grey” kind…) and had a delicious home cooked meal to offset my pie and pastry diet.
