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.
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.

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 [...]
My most recent Camping Adventure was to Gerroa on the NSW south coast only 20 mins drive from where I live it was So Close to travel to yet So Far from everyday reality once we set up camp.
Seven Mile Beach Holiday Park is a beautiful destination with spacious grassy powered sites right on the river.
It was late in May so we virtually had the place to ourselves.
The Parks Manager Leesa was very accommodating and we were pleased to learn that Fire Pits are permitted and available during the cooler months for a small fee.
We set up before dark and made our way to one of the local treasures a rustic little restaurant within walking distance called The Blue Swimmer. It was our friends 30th birthday so we celebrated by ordering most things on the [...]
