Camp Crawford and onto Camooweal Caves National Park

AUSTRALIA | Tuesday, 24 August 2010 | Views [1051] | Comments [2]


After arriving at Cape Crawford and filling up with fuel at the “Heartbreak Hotel”  we continued on and camped off the side of the road in Downs country.  There are no trees, and it is sooooo dry here.  Lots of large steers came to visit our camp the next morning before we headed off, and Ethan tried out his ‘mooing’.


Today we helped out a nice elderly gent who had run out of petrol and was stuck beside the road in his old converted mini bus that he had bought for $100 4 years ago.  Unfortunately we don’t carry any petrol being a diesel car – so we drove into Barkly Station to fill his Jerry can and returned it to him.  As he had no cash we were given some lovely frozen Barramundi fillets instead.


The next day we crossed into Queensland!!  Ethan was very happy that he is back in his home State.  Over night we camped beside a river in Camooweal Caves National Park, and explored the Caves before heading for Mount Isa the next morning.





Hi all
Have been impatiently checking your post for news in the past few days and was excited to find the catch up this evening. Well done to Ethan for holding on to that whistle for soooo long - we became slack with the whistles after 3-4 days on our trip. And Ethan , we're ecstatic that you're back in our home state too! Love to all & make the most of these last weeks - may it be relaxing, fun and incident-free: no more breakages or losing little boys!
The Horner- Neal's ♥X♥
PS We hope you've got a pile more photos to show us (including more family shots too) upon your much welcomed return.

Can't believe how close you are to finishing this trip. While I am so looking forward to see you again I will miss the wonderful photos and blogs. You might just have to email me a photo now and again to make me feel that I am (vicariously) still out in the bush. You will be pleased to know that although Brisbane is still cold at night, the days are warming up and spring has almost sprung.
