While camping it was interesting to hear the numbers of people saying they would normally be overseas for winter. Mostly Qlders. One group had their sister's motorhome instead of going to Bali. Another couple would normally holiday in Greece or Italy but decided to hire a van and see Qld. So many hire caravans and whingebagos. Camping ground was pretty much full the whole time. Every morning a shed load would leave and every night the sites would be full. Even the high priced cabins were full for the week. And this is outside any school holidays. One place which had accommodation and a restaurant has been closed since March with no signs of opening. Similarly in a couple of the towns there were motels closed up. Lots of wide loads (machinery and offices / cribhuts) heading west and north west so someone is spending money.
