Kitchen is finished plus Tambo, Queensland, Australia.

 At last my kitchen is totally finished and I have cooked in the new oven.  It's a bit different from my old one, doesn't seem as hot. The en suite has been commenced so it's into the main bathroom and one of the spare beds to let the builder have a free run.

A few years ago we visited Tambo is a great little outback town.  With only about 340 to 500 locals and a pub or two , Tambo makes a great little stopover on the drive from Charleville to Longreach.  Located around 1000km north west of Brisbane on the Landsborough Highway.
Originally established in the 1860's, to service local pastoral properties, today Tambo boasts a healthy economy supported by wool and beef.
The average temperature in July is 21.2C or 70.2F. Winter time.
Summer time the average temperature is 34.9C or 94.8F.

We have travelled to Tambo a few times in the past.

    1. You are correct on that, it's an endless road and there a many of those in Australia, particularly in the outback.

  3. Enjoy your oven. One day I will visit you so you will prepare me a delicious pizza. Tambo is a nice town but too hot for me as a European girl.

  6. Your kitchen seems to have been completed quickly although it has probably seemed to take forever for you.
    Is that heat simmering on the road in the first photo?

  7. We are sleeping in the spare room too as we have a painter in doing the other end of the house. Tambo is a cute little town. It has a famous Teddy Bear Shoppe and they had one of their bears was given to prince George when he was here. Great shots of the road and buildings.

      Yes, I do recall that little Teddy Shop but I didn't know about Prince George etc.

  8. I hope you are enjoying your new kitchen and maybe even, by now, the new bathroom. Tambo looks just like what I think about when I think about the Outback. Most of my images come from the book and movie, A Town Like Alice, which I have read and seen probably a dozen times or more.
