Left our friend’s place at Esk on Monday 11 October, spent night at Walgett NSW in free camp in town. Then went through Bourke to Wilcannia via the dirt road (350 klms dirt) which was in good condition as we did 80 kph most of the way. Spent Tuesday night at a rest area on a small hill in between Wilcannia and Broken Hill. Drizzling rain but the desert country is green and the wild flowers are in bloom making the views quite spectacular. Fields of purple, yellow, green, orange and flashes of red. It even smells good! Wednesday night we were at Wilmington near Port Augusta for a couple of nights. There are a number of walks to do in the area and will post photos of them in the next post, so stay tuned. The new cruiser is great and all is going well so far. It’s a little overcast at present but should be perfect for walking.
