This morning we packed up camp and left early before it got too hot, it was 31 degrees at 9am! Things were a lot quieter this morning, but there were a few people up and about!
We ended up getting to bed at 2am, but didn't really get much sleep due to the music and noise around, and then up again at 6.30am. Safe to say that everyone is a little tired this morning and in need of a coffee/V/Red Bull!

We called in to Tibooburra for fuel and breakfast before starting the drive to Bourke.
We headed to Bourke via the Tibooburra - Wanaaring - Bourke Road which we had heard gets a little rough, but we didn't have any issues. We called in to Wanaaring and were told that the section from there to Bourke had only just been graded so was in good condition, if we had been there a week beforehand we may not have got through.
Arrived in Bourke late arvo and we all agreed to book into a cabin in the caravan park for the night! It had been a long day's driving and after not much sleep last night, a comfy bed and air conditioning was appreciated.
It's 14 days until we head off on our next trip. This one will be a short outback trip to Cameron Corner for New Year's Eve. Cameron Corner is located at the border of NSW, SA & QLD. This unique location means that we can celebrate NYE three times due to the differing time zones!
We will leave on boxing day and our itinerary is as follows:
-Broken Hill / Silverton
This will be the new car's first trip so will be interesting to see how it goes. Kylie & Ben will be taking our old car and Mark & Virginia and their kids, Mariann and Anthony, will be coming along aswell. Although only a very quick trip, will be great to get out of Sydney during such a busy time of the year. Just not looking forward to the 45-50 degree heat and thousands of flies!
