Now heading home, it’s hard to stop after a long trip away.
Bourke is Bourke and had a bad reputation but it has been cleaned up with a huge reduction in indigenous issues and a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their homes. Just one day there then on to Moree for a night and fuel plus give the front of the car a good high pressure wash to remove a host of suicidal bugs, butterflys etc. that we seemed to have gained.
Moree to Warwick had us back in Queensland after we have traveled in 4 states and 1 territory and the final night. On the way we saw evidence of the substantial rains endured recently with several major rivers flooding but not so that we could not get through. This stop gave us a chance to start on the caravan cleaning some of which is hard on the sloped driveway at home prior to its return to storage.
So that completes yet another exciting trip for us, we have seen and done all that we had hoped with the exception of the Bungle Bungles but had a ton of fun on the way. Being able to see the Staircase to the Moon at Broome and experiencing the Wild flowers of W.A. made the trip more complete and another crossing of the Nullarbor which we love.
Now as the trip is over we thank you for joining us. We hope you enjoyed the tales and photos.
