Thargomindah

Jul 3, 2016 by

Thargomindah is just one of those place names that invite you to visit. Just to see what its like. It was a fairly short drive from Noccundra at under 3 hours and we were all looking forward to hot showers and caravan park amenities. The road there is good single lane bitumen and the drive gives a good appreciation for what channel country looks...

The Dig Tree

Jul 3, 2016 by

We packed up fairly early and headed over to the pub at Noccundra to fuel up in preperation of a run to the Dig Tree. Having a chat with the lady that ran the pub while paying for the fuel (not too bad at $1.71/l) she mentioned they get the road closures report about 9am and they were expecting a few more roads to...

Topped up with fuel and food in Quilpie and hit the road towards Eromanga. Arrived in town about lunchtime so we thought we would do our traditional iconic pub lunch of a beer and a plate of chips. Picked up the key to the local museum at the pub and had a good look through some really cool displays. The video is a must...

Lake Houdraman

Jun 29, 2016 by

We’re a little bit lost without our original planned itinery now that we’ve struck the road closures. Only a short drive today from Charleville to Quilpie. Decided to check out a free camp on the way into town at a place called Lake Houdraman. Was a bit worried at what we’d find as the road out of town was still noted as closed and...

With one of our longest driving days today we left Chinchilla weir at a very leisurely 8.30am. We have a reservation at our destination and with such a minimal set up when we arrive one of the real joys of the van is the removal of the need to get there early. We stopped at the very busy Roma Bakery for a late morning...

Chinchilla Weir

Jun 25, 2016 by

Excited to be going away for 2 whole weeks and the first longish test of travelling with our Starcraft, we were packed and underway by about 11 am. Our first day destination is Chinchilla Weir (thanks Wikicamps) as with both Megan & I working full time we just didn’t have the time or energy to get everything ready and packed to do a 4am...

Apr 25, 2016 by

After dropping off the dog at her temporary home we got underway for our ANZAC Day weekend destination at Sommerville Valley Tourist Park located on the banks of Storm King Dam outside of Stanthorpe. I was looking forward to the drive and in particular how the Pajero would go towing the van up Cunninghams Gap as all the places we had gone to date...

New Beginnings

Nov 12, 2015 by

Many times whilst travelling around in our camper trailer we have been envious of the grey & not so grey nomads in their caravans who could start packing up before sun up, find a place to eat lunch away from flies (inside), had a minimal set up when arriving and on a cold/rainy/windy day had somewhere to hide that wasn’t their bed. Well we...

Sheepstation Creek

Jan 5, 2015 by

I had a couple of weeks off over Christmas/New Year so we thought we would try one of the camp sites around the Border Ranges. We drove up the Lions Road to Sheepstation Creek campground in some pretty heavy rain and managed to set up the camper in a break between showers.   Campground was best suited to back packer vans and we managed...

Boonoo Boonoo… again

With work and study getting in the way of our ability to get away in the camper much this year we decided to go for a quiet long weekend just over the border in NSW at Boonoo Boonoo National Park. Last time we drove here we made the mistake of going over the Border Ranges and then following our GPS on a very long...

The plan for the day was to walk in as far as Wards Canyon and then stop at as many spots as possible on the way out. The idea being if we got tired out we could go straight back to camp and do a shorter walk the next day to catch what we’d missed. At about 4kms in to the walk and complaining...

  Woke up this morning with ice crystals formed like stars on the inside of the tent. When the sun finally came up and started to burn the frost off it started to rain a little inside so it took a little time to try and dry things off as much as possible before packing up. We were booked in for 4 nights at...

On our 3rd day here we drove the western section of the park and started with a visit to the Marlong Plain. From there we stopped next at Lot’s Wife which is an impressive sandstone pillar in the middle of the bush. Next was Kookaburra Cave with an interesting array of indigenous art & carving. See if you can work out why it’s called...

After a quiet day hanging around the camp ground and relaxing we decided to go and explore some of the features of the park. There are a few marked historical sites from early white settlement and we were surprised to note at the Incineration Site that the remains of the policeman murdered are actually held at the church where Megan & I were married....

The road north to Mitchell whilst good and fairly smooth was in some places single lane and in others 1.75 lanes wide. Got stuck behind a caravan doing 75km/h for 20kms or so which was a little frustrating as I knew we had a long drive ahead. Stopped in Mitchell for some lunch, fuel, food, beer etc and continued on the approx 220kms north...
