Where oh where have I been

Well literally to the back of Bourke and back. And what an absolutely great time we had. We set out the day after Boxing Day our first stop Young. Our travels to Bourke included stopovers at Lake Cargelligo and Cobar.

Whilst at Bourke New Years day we went shutter shopping not a place was open all well secured with roller doors. The photo below is of the main street.

A beautiful building the original post office.

The flooded Darling river. We were very fortunate that we were not caught up in any of the floods but we did have to rethink our travels not to include going into Queensland.

We spent a few days in Bourke a very hot place in the middle of summer which did not both us too much it was the giant mosquitoes that were a bigger problem.
Because we had to change our travel plans we then headed South through to Nyngan, Warren,
Coonamble, Gilgandra, Gulargambone, Warrumbungles, Coonabarabran then as our original plans were to go to Lightning Ridge we set out and travelled North again. Then we headed for home stopping at lots more caravan parks. I certainly will not bore you with the 500 plus photos just to say we had a wonderful holiday travelling over 3,200 kilometers.

I bet you had a great time, although the heat would have been terrible. We've done trips like this too and I just love getting out there. Glad the flooding didn't spoil any of your plans. Back to reality again for awhile! Take care, xx
