On the road to the Birdsville Races!

Once again we are ‘on the road’! We are doing the scenic route directly west from Brisbane to Birdsville – nearly 1600klms. We have been on all the major roads out this way so have taken a couple of detours to spice it up! One road was a mistake – it was a mining road so full of wide loads and not much to see really.
We stopped at Mitchell once the ‘Liquid Gold’ poured last weekend. Much needed and beautiful rain. I must recommend a caravan park at Mitchell that we stayed in many years ago when it first opened and it is just as good if not better now. Major Mitchell Caravan Park – it is well laid out, has clean amenities and friendly owners. Oh and it won’t break the bank.
We are currently in a small town called Morven, halfway between Mitchell and Charleville. We are continuing on tomorrow so we can be in Birdsville early hopefully before too many of the 6000 plus people arrive. Morven Recreation Grounds is another gem. Not many powered sites but everything you want for only $5 per night! Try it for an overnighter.
Will post some photos of our trip once we get to Birdsville.
