Wolfang Peak

Monday was a James May kind of day: jump in a classic car, roar out to the airfield and putter around for an hour in an old plane. I can't think of a better way to enjoy a public holiday, and the Herald seemed to enjoy the trip as well. At least, nothing fell off...

Trips around rural Queensland always take a while - the round trip to Clermont, the next town, is 152 miles. 152 very bumpy miles, as the road is potholed and rutted by 70-tonne road trains. The flight was much smoother, which is a blessing as the thermals can throw a Cessna around like a paper plate (it weighs less than the Herald).

I stopped on the way back at Wolfang Peak, a volcanic plug left over as part of the Peak Range. Apparently there's a walking track up it!
