    Birdsville to Windorah QLD

    August 11, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    We are on our homeward leg now after an amazing 8 weeks. There have been so many highlights and we feel very grateful to live in this expansive and unique country of ours. Haydn is delighted with how the FJ Cruiser has has done everything he wanted and more.
    So beautiful to see water in Lake Eyre, wildflowers in the Simpson Desert, stunning sunsets and sunrises, starlir skies, a green and lush inland area and flowing rivers...
    We've loved all the wildflowers and wildlife especially the variety of flowering plants and birds. Over 12000klms traversed... on bitumen, across water, dirt, mud, sand and rock. All manner of conditions with a special shout out to the courtesy of others on the road, acknowledging one another with a casual wave upon passing. 👍
    We had a great support base at home in Townsville plus friends and relatives looking out for us and following us on our travel blog and fb....a huge thank you. It couldn't have happened without their encouragement. Special mention to mum and dad, Ella and Nathan, and Nelson and Gabby. 💞
    (Thought I'd share some animal pics from our trip on this footprint)
