It looked to fly up from Melbourne (Tullamarine) to land at Longreach Airport.  It then flew to Cloncurry Airport and Cairns before eventually returning to Tullamarine.

While a trio of Cessna Citation bizjets were also noted visiting some CQ Airports.

Avia Aviation (Victoria) Cessna 510 Citation Mustang bizjet VH-MSU visited Gladstone Airport from Bankstown.

Machjet (Machjet International) Cessna 525 Citation CJ1 bizjet VH-SIY arrived into Rockhampton Airport from the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast before then departing up to Hamilton Island Airport.  VH-SIY then returned to the Sunny Coast.

And Brisbane-based Teys Australia Cessna 525 Citation CJ2 bizjet VH-TEY was noted arriving into Rockhampton Airport from Archerfield.

UPDATE!  On Wednesday 6 July, VH-TEY departed Rockhampton Airport and returned to Archerfield.

Finally, American-registered Eclipse EA500 bizjet N257AK flew up from Archerfield to complete airwork at Hervey Bay (Fraser Coast) and Kingaroy Airports before it then returned to Archerfield.   

Meanwhile, also on Tuesday 5 July, recently re-registered Brescon (Toowoomba) Beech B200 King Air VH-DYN visited my local Clermont Aerodrome from Toowoomba-Wellcamp.

Brisbane-based Crockett Aviation Group (ex FIFO Jet P/L) Beech B200 King Air VH-FAQ visited Hamilton Island Airport from Archerfield.

And Tasfast Air Freight (Southern Airlines) Beech 1900C VH-YSO made its first visit to Central Queensland, visiting Emerald Airport on this new weekly flight.  VH-YSO flew up from Devonport, Melbourne (Essendon) and West Sale to Emerald Airport before it then departed to Bourke, West Sale and Melbourne (Moorabbin).

Finally, also on Tuesday 5 July, not quite within the CQ region (but close enough!) but Victoria based Piper PA-30 VH-PBH and Piper PA-24-250 VH-CDB, in company with New Zealand-based Piper PA-24-250 Comanche ZK-BAZ, all flew into Winton Aerodrome from Alice Springs.  The three had flown together from Birdsville to Alice Springs late last week, with ZK-BAZ flying across from the Gold Coast after arriving there from New Zealand in the days prior.
