Woke up to a glorious morning, so the rush was on to wander up to the top of the dune for an awesome sunrise before breakie and the camp pack up. Normally when I am out here the normal route to take is straight to Tibboburra, some 140km away along the Toona Gate Road that runs between Cameron Corner and Tibboburra. Today was different. With 2 years of drought water levels are down in the local swamps and lakes. Just north of Lake Pinaroo there is a little used road called Middle Road ; which runs close to the lake through some very low sections.
The ‘norm’ here is to book into the caravan park at the local servo. Nice and clean, showers work, we can have a fire and walk to the pub for dinner !!!… thats the plan and tomorrow we explore the town and Mount Woods Station and its pastoral museum.
