Outback 2011: Springsure

In Australian slang, something’s “a furphy” if it’s incorrect or misleading. The original Furphy, though, is a water cart made by a company started by John Furphy in the latter half of the 19th century in Victoria.

The Queen’s Arms Hotel where were excellent evening meals are served.

… and, of course, a mandatory photograph of a double road-train.
