Our first stop on our Central Queensland trip. Mendooran Hotel serves a fantastic meal and a cold beer or wine. Decorated with murals and painted in prominent colours the pub welcomes visitors as they travel through NSW to Queensland or south to Victoria. Mendooran is the oldest town on the Castlereagh River. We were camped on the banks of the Castlereagh in a free camp not far from the bridge. The area had basic amenities with cold showers and toilets.
