Spent the last two nights at Mataranka enjoying the thermal pool. The place was packed, heaps of school kids and old farts! Had dinner at the Bistro and listened to the same old singer and his band as were there two years ago – I swear even his jokes were the same. We’re off to Gregory National Park NT today. We may camp in there for a night to check out a couple of gorges then onto Keep River National Park next to the West Australian border for two nights to view rock art and spectacular landscapes – photos to follow.
We caught up with the Coopers at Mataranka. They are travelling a lot slower than us and we will probably overtake them today even though they left yesterday. They anticipated taking at least two nights to reach where we will reach today.
Telephone service has been intermittent so I can’t say when I’ll be able to update this next.
Meanwhile we’re having a ball with daytime temperatures now around 30 degrees with cool nights, perfect travelling weather
