We stopped at Mungallala cemetery to look at Jan's (John's wife's) grave before the short drive to Charleville. The grave behind is John Parents, and behind that, his grandparents.

The Caravan Park we stayed at in Charleville had the smallest sites we encountered on the trip. We didn't do much today but set up camp, buy some groceries and book a session at the Cosmos Centre for tomorrow night.

We had a bit of a look around the town.

Had a look at another museum, at the Charleville Historic House. Every town seems to have its museum.

The next two photos are of a 1925 Dennis Fire Tender that was used originally at Charleville and then at Morven Auxiliary Station until 1970.
