Big Red Bash – Birdsville July 2018

In my last post I mentioned we were heading to Birdsville end of June for the Big Red Bash in mid July 10-12th.  I thought I’d do another ‘promo‘ for anyone who might be interested in attending but haven’t yet bought a ticket.

There is a Facebook site called Travelling to the Big Red Bash that has lots of information for Bash newbies (like us) and people show how they’re decking out their rigs for the trip. It’s a long way for most people and it’s a highlight holiday for families too (it’s in school holidays).  The Diamantina Region www.thediamantina.com.au has so much to offer whilst you are there, just see the Info Centre for brochures. In 2014 we spent 3-4 weeks there on the Common and volunteered at the Race Club before the races and loved it.

The main website has most information too along with the Oztix ticketing. www.bigredbash.com.au I have bought my ticket (B is volunteering) and some merchandise (car decal, sticker & cloth badge). B will be TERRIBLY impressed when I declare a sticker is going on the truck!!!

Starting to organise meals so I can cook in advance and cryovac (saving me precious time when there). So any Grey Nomad mates (or not so grey) who want to join us & thousands of others for the concert in the desert (fantastic lineup) get to it and order those tickets!!

G’day Travellers!

Hey fellow Grey Nomads & travellers alike. This is my first post on my site so forgive me as I’m a Newbie!

Hubby (‘B’) and I sold up our business & house and hit the road back in 2005 and have enjoyed travelling Australia ever since. As a hobby I started recording our travels in photos (as most of us do). Some of them were pretty OK I thought, as did others and so I started selling some of them at local markets along the way.

We are currently sitting still whilst ‘B’ works as a cane haul driver in the Burdekin Region in north Queensland, so I thought I’d have a go at putting my photos online. If you like any of them please email me, more information on photos on Gallery page.

Enjoy!
