We Left Queensland to Outrun the Rain
After goodbyes on the Gold Coast, we headed to Warwick. Overnight stop then Inglewood, 109 km away, for a coffee. No such luck! Drove on another nearly 100 km to Goondiwindi, border town. And good coffee. Yes! Goodbye Queensland. There was some serious flooding on the east coast but we avoided it.
Hello NSW Again
We struggled to find a good route to Cobar (and decent roads – many were “chopped up”). Settled on Coonabarabran as our first stop. We drove, 350 km in the rain. 3660 km to go to get home. We also celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary (6th July) by stopping at The Crossing Theatre in Narrabri, en route, for lunch and a coffee. 😍
After Coonabarabran it was onto Nyngan, in the shire of Bogan. I kid you not.
Then we free camped at the RSL Club in Cobar (really free) and had a meal there. I had Goat Curry. Yum!
Onto Wilcannia, where the Darling River was starting to take over the caravan park.
Fortunately, the river didn’t get to us. Wilcannia is an odd little town. A fuel station with tiny shop, police station, court house and post office. And a pub, of course. We couldn’t find a supermarket. And no coffee!
Then onto Broken Hill, via Little Topar (in the Outback). A little pub, servo, Cafe and restaurant all rolled into one.
Stayed at Broken Hill for two nights. An interesting place. More about that next time.
Only in Queensland
These were new to me.
Choose your pie. Then for $2 extra you can get mashed potatoes, mushy peas and gravy on top! It tasted a lot better than it looks.
You know the e-scooters that you hire, ride and then leave somewhere? The same with bikes or e-bikes. Well, how about with a car??
Until next time…
