Australia – The Rest

I got so wrapped up in enjoying the trip that I couldn’t be bothered to keep writing while I was on it! After the stargazing, we made our way west towards Broken Hill. Broken Hill is far out on the edge of the outback, and took us two days of driving to get close. We… Read the rest »

Australia – Day 08

We left Gibraltar National park and made good time heading south west. Our eventual goal was Broken Hill, a town on the edge of the outback and about as far out as you can go in New South Wales without needing to stock up on extra fuel.  We have been playing it by ear each… Read the rest »

Australia – Day 6, 7

It was good… Read the rest »

Australia – Day 02

Australia – Day 01

First night in the camper in Australia! Left Sydney around noon/1:00 and drove a few hours north, taking the scenic “tourist routes” and just enjoying the first time being alone in almost a week. I stopped and did some food shopping and got gas before leaving the main roads and heading down a small coastal road to this small… Read the rest »
