There are precious few stopping off points along this road, so we pulled in at the small community of Lakeland for a rest before moving on again. We didn't see any lakes but the place was full of 4WD vehicles. Talking to the travellers they all seemed to be heading to Laura.
It was only afterward I read about the annual rodeo and races at Laura a tiny community a further hundred or so kilometres up the road. It's a shame we missed it.
We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop. That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town. A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.
