We just finished exploring Charleville. If astronomy is your thing then the Cosmos centre is for you. Unfortunately We aren’t but each to their own. The other big attraction is the Bilby experience, it’s supposed to be well worth a look, but once again, not for us. We opted to just drive around and take in the local sites and do a bit of shopping. By midafternoon we were back at The Red Lizard camp ground where I got out the tool box and fixed the damaged light bar which Skippy damaged.
And now to rate the Red Lizard, I was going to deduct points for lack of grass, but this is the outback and the red dust and gravel is part of it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the warm friendly atmosphere and extremely clean amenities more than makes up for the lack of a bit of greenery. Very different to Cunnamulla [...]
Today we left this beautiful place called Warrego Riverside tourist park in Cunnamulla and continued our journey north, destination Charleville.
We give Cunnamulla and Warrego Riverside tourist park a 10 out of 10. Apparently its only Vodafone that has no reception but easily fixed by either purchasing a sim or going to the library for unlimited wifi.. Beautiful place, friendly and helpful owner (Judy).
We drove out the gate and had just settled back in top gear ,when a 6 foot Grey kangaroo decided to jump in front of us, he came from nowhere and we hit head on, thankfully he bounced of the bull bar rolled a couple of times and then hopped away. So glad we ordered the van with a full bull bar, if not, this would definitely be a different story.
Charleville is only approximately 200 kms from Cunnamulla, so we got to our campsite by 10 am. We [...]
We left Dubbo at 7.45am and headed off to Cunnamulla.
From Dubbo to Bourke was uneventful, the road trains being the main hazard. We stopped in Nyngan at the BP to fill up and was pleasantly surprised that the diesel was cheaper than Sydney.
Stopped at Bourke to get some basic supplies from IGA superstore and then stopped for lunch at the bakery around the corner. Nice pies, very clean and friendly, plus restrooms .
From Bourke to Cunnamulla you have to have your wits about you . The amount of road trains and trucks increased noticeably and the amount of Dead kangaroos, emus and other animals dead and alive needed your full concentration.
Other than that, the roads were good and some very nice old pubs and quaint townships along the way.
We reached our campsite (Warrego riverside tourist park) at 3.30pm and we were absolutely delighted at how beautiful this [...]
My name is Vernon and my wife’s name is Lily. We have just completed day one of a 5 week outback adventure which will take in Dubbo, Cunnamulla, Charleville, Longreach, Mt Isa, Barkley homestead, Tennants Creek, Alice Springs, Ayers Rock, kynuna, Cooper Pedy, Port Augusta, Mildura, Euchuca, Colac Colac and back to Sydney, via Albion Park Rail to see Ben and the team.
We will report on road conditions, fuel availability and consumption, campsites we stayed at and give them a rating from 1-5 and of course take pics of the places we visit.
We are doing this in our long wheelbase VW Transporter Discoverer, which we bought new from Campervans Australia last September. Can’t fault the vehicle or the fit out, but the stand out feature has to be the dealings with Ben and the whole team. An absolute pleasure to deal with not to mention the ongoing support and friendship.
