Breakfast in Emerald with Cassie

Looking for a great place to have a good breaky in Emerald – look no further than La Porte Rosse. Quaint Italian style cafe with a great menu. After our night on the road it was pleasant to stop – have a coffee, and eat good food. I had creamy mushrooms and turkish bread and Mike consumed eggs Benedict on homemade english muffins. My coffee was silvery smooth and hit the spot.

We also got to catch up with our niece Cassie. It was lovely hearing all about her work, life and love, Matt.

Leaving there mid-morning we drove straight to Winton (600kms West). The only place of note that we stopped was Barcaldine. It was really interesting there as they have an ancient tree that is called the Tree of Knowledge. This was the tree that the Labor Party was formed under. The tree is essentially dead now but they have built this massive structure over it – just amazing.
