Bourke and beyond tour



I've wanted to visit Bourke.  And now 4,000 kms later we've been there and lots of other places.  View the map

The tour is an experiment with working on the road,  doing 3 hours each morning and some catch up at night. This means moving off later each day and no morning strolls so photographically not up there with the best but a great trip nonetheless.

That's the view from our caravan window on our first port of call Canberra, for Ian to do some business.  We start wayfaring in earnest tomorrow.

  1. Ha, here you are again :-)

    And - the photo is good. It shows the "caravan atmosphere" very well I think. It's what you see. No more no less.

  2. Wow, that's some trip, Joan. I'm really looking forward to your shots. Just came back from 10 days in north west QLD (Mt Isa and north west of that) myself, so have some pics to trade with you too.

    1. It is not cold in the van. It is a very small room to heat in comparison to a big house with high ceilings.

  6. Good heavens! What a loop! Had to laugh that you took it to two pages on Google maps. I have never been inland like this. From memory, this is where a lot of the floodwater flows ... this part of QLD and NSW.

Gundagai exploring

We were having a coffee at the bakery and I noticed a sign on a hotel saying it was a Cobb and Co coach stop.  That got me wondering if there was a hidden Royal Hotel in the town.  A quick google revealed not that hotel but this derelict one as the former Royal.

We found a little time to go on a drive to see the local towns  This wonderful old squatters mansion is outside Mintaro.
