Quite a nice free stop. Would have been amazing without the wind. LOTS of room to spread out.
VERY happy to be leaving Mt Isa. Nice place for a stopover and re-supply (and a few cool activities like going into a mine) but I wouldn’t stay there very long again.
Drive from Mt Isa out to Camooweal was good. First long nothing-ness roads.
Passed a guy on a horse and cart travelling across the country. Epic!
Saw a family in a bus with 9 kids, 2 dogs and 2 birds! HUGE BUS! amazing. Apparently travelling around the country the past 6 years. Most likely bump into them again.
Camooweal has a few service stations, a pub, a few caravan parks and a little shop. Sad to see the local butcher closed. Was looking forward to some of their home grown goodies.
Arrived in at camp around 4pm, later than we expected. Took a while to find the turnoff because our nav man was taking us the wrong way. No we can’t drive across a river.
Take the exit west of the bridge onto a dirt road, don’t take the first left, continue on the main dirt road and take the 3rd or 4th left. They all go along the creek. There’s about 2km of creek so spread out!
