      March 30, 2022 in Australia ⋅ ☁️ 18 °C

      Back to Inverell to get fuel, forgot
      to get it yesterday. Then we travelled on to Bingara and checked out the campsites by the river and the dogs got to explore, we bought lunch in town at the bakery then moved on to Barraba and the Silo Art. Then hit the dirt road to Longarm, Borah Creek, Rangari and Kelvin before pulling up for the night in the new CMCA Park in Gunnedah. At last we had a day with blue sky and sun, thank goodness no rain.Read more

      43 • Nach Westen zu den Sternen

      September 8, 2016 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

      Start in einen guten Tag mit Kaffee, Milchreis und glücklicher Familie. Scheinbar wirken wir anziehend, oder zumindest Mia :-) Wie fast jeden Tag sind heute wieder viele nette Aussies auf uns zugekommen, von denen wir gute Tipps und Vorschläge für schöne Ausflugsziele bekommen.
      Die Gegend abseits der großen Küstentouristenroute ist von Landwirtschaft geprägt, es gibt deutlich mehr Schafe und Rinder als Einwohner und Touristen zusammen. Und landschaftlich gefällt es uns auch sehr gut. Wir werden immer wieder mit neuen Highlights überrascht.
      Nach langem Überlegen fahren wir, statt nach Süden, noch einmal weitere 200 km landeinwärts nach Coonabarabran, der Astronomiehauptstadt Australiens. Wegen guter Bedingungen gibt es hier im Warrunbungle Nationalpark einige Observatorien, u.a. das riesige Siding Spring Observatorium. Martin konnte dann am späteren Abend noch im kleinen privaten Warrumbungle Observatorium durch die Teleskope kucken. Trotz vieler Wolken gab es einiges zu sehen :)

    • Day 1

      Home to Mungindi

      August 1, 2022 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

      The biggest, planned driving day of our trip today. We put air in the tyres and left just before 9am. It was a bit drizzly but cleared the further we got. A quick maccas stop for breakfast at Muswellbrook and back on the road. It's only day 1 and I've already given up on putting shoes on and off, socks and slides it is. Stopped at Gunnedah hotel for a drink and lunch, got a nice spot by the fire. There was a heap of white stuff either side of the road on the way in and out of Boggabri, at first I thought a poor cockatoo, but then it just kept going! We think it was cotton, pretty cool. When we got into Narrabri we ended up in the wrong lane and got pulled over by a cop, all good, he had a laugh about not being from around here and the confusing roads. Also, turns out we've been saying Mungindi wrong, whoops. Stretched our legs at the Moree visitor information centre then we were on our way. We got to Mundingi on sunset and met Lyn, who invited us to sit by the fire and talk shit with the other travellers. Amazing choice, absolute legends. They cooked us dinner and we had a few drinks. We did have a good laugh with Steve, he's an AFL fan, supporting Carlton while the rest were NRL fans, he was glad there were finally some 'educated people' around, he had to get a photo with us so he wouldn't forgetRead more
