We drive into Rollingstone which is a cluster of houses engulfed by tropical gardens, a school, a police station, a pub and a general store.
The store is so typical of north Queensland and famous for its ham off the bone. The front door is a roller shutter. When the store is open the shutter is up, no fly screens, just the whole shop open to the warm tropical breeze. It sells everything, fuel, groceries, souvenirs, has a post office agency and even sells chunks of coral for six bucks. Which I might add, anyone can pick up off the beach for free. The ham though is sensational.
