Day six started with a visit to St Francis Catholic School in the rural township of Hughenden. With only 34 students, the school went above and beyond to put on a breakfast of kings, and the students gave the Bashers a rousing rendition of ‘Rockin’ Robin’ to thank them for visiting. Variety donated $6,000 worth of outdoor musical equipment to the school, which judging by their vocal talents will be put to great use.
Next stop was the Oasis Roadhouse at The Lynd. The locals had organized lunch and games to feed and entertain the Bashers. Some of the best dirt tracks so far on this Bash were enjoyed in the afternoon, including a water crossing to wash away the mud.
Georgetown was our home for the night, located 412km south-west of Cairns. Next stop – Karumba and the Gulf of Carpentaria!
