Madura is 83 k east of Cocklebiddy and 115 K west of Mundrabilla, the roadhouse is situated at the base of the Hampton Tablelands and is pretty scenic for the area. Originally it was settled as a pastoral homestead in 1876 and later was well known for producing polo and cavalry horses for the British Imperial Army. It was an important place because it is the only known site with free flowing bore water, the water is brackish and only fit for stock. Today it continues as a pastoral area, mainly with sheep.
The roadhouse comes with a motel, a licensed restaurant, swimming pool, a caravan park with camping facilities.
This is where we are now and will be here till the parts for our bus arrive so hubby can put a new water pump in... then we shall be on our way once more. It looks like a popular spot as every night travellers in all sorts of vehicles come in for the night.. the ablution block is clean and the water hot, there is a laundry and the staff are friendly. I'm really enjoying the stop :)
The water pump has been removed and its all ready for a new one.... lets hope it turns up tomorrow :)
