Curious, Mysterious, Marvellous, Electrical: The Butcher of Mungindi

You can read this week’s Curious, Mysterious, Marvellous, Electrical newsletter here.

Last week I set off on a 1000 kilometre road trip across rural Australia on a kind of impulse Bowie pilgrimage.

I didn’t get to my destination, but found myself at the border between Queensland and New South Wales: a land of cotton farms, ice, drought, and drama.

I learned about beer and butchery, drugs and irrigation, the ballad of Kelly and Red, plus timezones, crime, and the One Ton Peg in the thick of the bush.

You can learn about those things too, over at Curious, Mysterious, Marvellous, Electrical.
