Jandowae Queensland, Australia

After quite a while not being on the road, Annie and I are back being Nomads again, lots of medical stuff done on the ageing body, and some much needed repairs and maintenance completed on our mobile penthouse.

After getting the truck serviced in Gympie we were set free to travel. Now the way we like to go is to have a general idea on an area where we will travel through the rest is reliant on serendipity. This is how we came across Jandowae in Queensland. Not too far from Kingaroy or Dalby, nice and small and very friendly.

We had intended on staying 2 or 3 days only but as luck would have it we had arrived just prior the biennial Jandowae Timbertown Festival, so a few days in Jandowae turned into a week.

Nearby Jandowae is Jimbour. Not a lot to this little town but there is an old homestead there that has quite a history and well worth a visit.

These links will give you plenty of information about both locations and the festival as it happened in 2016.

My advice, if you are ever in the area and looking for somewhere to stay then check out the Showground at Jandowae.

Hope you like the photos of Jandowae and Jimbour.
