Michael & Sharon Kennedy travel blog

13th May 2012

Day 6: Michael seen paw prints this morning on his way to the bin that was provided that he reckons were from a lion or the like so we decided that it was time to head off pronto. We left at 8am for a big trip into the Northern Territory for the first time in our caravan travels. The Donohue Highway proved to be better than we expected. It was approx. 260km from Boulia to the NT border. This is still 200km short of Jervois Station which is the first fuel stop. Once we crossed into NT the road deteriorated from a dirt highway to a corrugated road much to our dismay. We arrived at Jervois Station at 3pm to find the fuel was 213.80c/l plus a $2.00 surcharge for credit cards. Michael nearly had a fit and refused to pay the extra $15.00 to camp there with no water or power after he had taken on 100 litres of fuel. We then proceeded another 80km (which was 200km short of the Stuart Highway) to find a suitable site to camp for the night. Sharon thought this was an interesting way to spend Mother’s Day with the cows and other livestock wandering by.
