The home of Cubby Station, the largest irrigated cotton property in Australia – in a high river year they store an incredible amount of water with a capacity as big as the Sydney harbor and grow 50,000 acres of cotton.
The town itself boasts a good size grocery shop, a butcher, baker and clothing store due to being so close to the station.
Shane and I head to a lovely spot on Balonne River to try our hand again to catch a fish. Alas it is another occasion to pull some more of the pesky carp from the river. A couple of young chaps fishing up the river are quite impressed but didn’t accept our offer to help themselves to the fish. They have pulled up in a fire truck and we wonder if they are still on duty.
The caravan park is fantastic with the owners happy to help out with anything you need even taking the time out to show us aerial shots of cubby station and some brilliant harvesting photos.
