Mount Scoria near Biloela
On leaving Carnarvon Gorge we felt ourselves at the crossroads. Where to go from here? Going inland without Birdsville and Innamincka seemed a travesty but due to the recent floods, the road to Birdsville had been closed. Now it has been re-opened but not to Innamincka. Do we backtrack or leave Birdsville for another trip and head for the coast - and very probable rain? We decided to head for the coast and maybe visit friends on the way back homewards. Birdsville has to wait for the next trip.
Mount Scoria is known as the musical mountain because of the basalt columns at the top that ring when hit with another rock.
